Point Wilson Synopsis



As of December 12, 2006, I have spent 267 days, over 800 hours imaging and
observing at Point Wilson. In that time I have seen 92 species of birds and
8 species of marine mammals. What I have listed below is the species, date
of highest count and the highest number of birds seen in one observation
session which is usually 3 hours .

If you look at my flickr site you will see sets ( group of images) titled
Point Wilson. Many of the images of the birds and mammals seen at Point
Wilson can be viewed there. All the images are geo tagged and coded with
data, date, time, exposure etc. You can see all of this by looking at an
image and clicking on properties also known as exif.
