I spent the day working intermittently on my yard list, managing to tie the highest count for total species that I have had during the past 8 years. The day's efforts allowed me to add five species to the year list for the yard. I entered this list into the NABA BIS program, requested an email list to be mailed to me, modified it to suit myself, and present it below for your perusal.
