eBird Observations Approach 100 million

eBird currently has 99,461,545 observations and is giving away prizes for the 100 millionth observation and a randomly drawn user that submits a complete checklist between now and the 100 millionth observation. July and early August are times when few checklists are submitted and many folks prefer to stay indoors rather than brave the heat and humidity. But this time of year can be a good opportunity to find early migrants and dispersing juveniles like the Worm-eating Warblers and Wild Turkey polts I saw last week along Cook's Trail.
