The previous total of 195 based on the office records has been revised UPWARD. Paper entries received via email has to be correlated to the ebird cornell database that I finally got to today. Doing this cross checking my office database records with Ebird found that 5 omissions were caught, including 2 that were mine ! ( Clay Colored Sparrow was one I forgot to include)
The new total is 200 bird species for Prospect Park of 2012, a very rare milestone ! Thanks to all and this concludes the terrific year for the record books.
