We're mere hours away from the Long Branch Christmas Bird Count which starts technically at midnight. We have some teams out owling and the majority of us will be meeting at 6:00 AM for a good ol' NJ diner breakfast. The weather looks good with a high near 40 and clear skies. My group will be covering Allaire State Park. We'll have 7 other groups out doing there thing. As the compiler, I've set up a nice pizza dinner with some coffee and dessert. Yum. I'll be back tomorrow or first thing Sunday morning with the full results. Let's see if we can beat last year's 122 species.
