2012 Patch Contest – February results

Drew WeberContests, General News and InfoLeave a Comment

Here are the February totals for the patch list competition. We are now up to 62 patches! Bucktoe Creek Preserve seems to be running away with the species total at 70 although the playing field may not be level since that is a multi-person effort. That’s not a big deal though since this competition is all for fun. It is nice to see a bunch of patches over 50 species, as well as many patches that are having more than 1 or 2 checklists submitted each week. That is producing some great data on seasonal abundance and spring arrivals!

Keep up the good work everyone and check out the January results to compare. There is still plenty of time to join in the fun by following the instructions here.
