Secondly, as I went to sync Curtis and my all-time yard lists on the excel spreadsheet- I found several tallying errors on my all-time yard list which had been tallied on paper only. I had double-counted Crow and Cooper's Hawk, but had failed to include (!!) Red-tailed Hawk, Mallard, Mourning Dove, Great Horned Owl, and Brown-headed Cowbird! So I lost 2 but gained 5, for a net gain of 3, taking me to 82 all time. The NOHA is actually 82/46, not 79/46. Now I am only 2 behind him all-time. Of course, now I am ready for all the belly-aching and foul-crying to begin- so BRING IT ON.
Finally, note that I have posted the spreadsheet of our tallies at google docs. You three and I have full editing rights, but the public can only view this document. Look at the top of the scoreboard for the hyperlink to the table for viewing. Pretty neat tool!
