I looked up my eBird results for the year thus far. In my home county I've seen 103 species, down a bit from last year. My most recent new addition this year was a Hermit Thrush on Saturday. The total is about 40% of the available offerings in my area.
I read tonight about Des Moines and watched an episode of Star Trek: the Next Generation,in which Lesley Crusher takes tests having to do with getting into Starfleet Academy. We got a nice card from my wife's cousin, a nice card from an LJ friend, and a nice box that proved a pleasant surprise.
