Hi Tweeters -

Here are the results of our December survey at Discovery Park in 
Seattle.  Sorry for the delays in posting it - it was a pretty slow 
count-day, all told.

Overview:For over a year now, a group of us has been gathering on or 
around  the first Saturday of every month to take part in the 
Discovery Park portion of the "Seattle Audubon Neighborhood Bird 
Project."  Our monthly census is one of a series being overseen by 
Seattle Audubon Society at different spots around the area. More 
participants are always welcome.

For Discovery Park, we now have several loops that are covered by 
teams of 2 or 3. Each loop covers a different portion of the park and 
consists of around 8-10 five-minute stops at set points. At each 
stop, every species seen or heard inside a 50m-radius circle is 
recorded during the 5-minute stop. Since the stops are predetermined, 
the results we are getting will hopefully be useful for longer-term 
comparisons. Having set stops also means that our results aren™t like 
a CBC attempt to list everything observed everywhere.

The December survey was conducted on  Saturday December 4 2004:
