Millerton Creek Return BioBlitz

So, headed out to another BioBlitz this weekend. Millerton Creek up by Pt. Reyes Station is having a repeat blitz. Looks like interesting habitat, and I am missing a few easy migrant species from my Marin county list. Below is the url for the project, with registration information.

If you want to carpool with me, we'll need to be leaving from central San Mateo county ca. 5:30 am, in order to get some early birding in. Both Leslie and I have some late afternoon obligations, so we'll need to leave around 1:00. I have room for myself, Leslie and two more. Hope to see lots of you!

@kestrel & @rebeccafay let's talk about where the birding will be best for the early AM!

I wanna go. Why does it have to be so far away. Why do I have to sit in an office on Friday instead of driving north. Why? Why? Why?

Especially since I could have brought you along as a surprise ringer on my all-day Big Day the next day in Santa Clara county, with the Rock Wrens team, that generally pulls down 140-150 species!

Now it hurts even more.

Hey gang - look at last year's Millerton results. We have some work to do to add all the birds! http://www.inaturalist.org/projects/malt-millerton-creek-ranch-bioblitz

Next time. I'm doing an insect bioblitz in Oakland.

Oh! Now I am torn! But I committed to this blitz, and really do need to work on my Marin bird list, as you can see. Next time, Eddie!

Unless I hear from others on this list, my car tomorrow will contain just me and @leslie_flint ...

Your bird list shows a lot of loyalty to the coastal vagrant traps. Time to visit some oak woodlands.

Precisely! I did clear a few of those missing birds at the bio-Blitz!
