    I’m enjoying your posts. Good luck with the count! I wonder if you have set yourself a target. Is there a record you are looking to beat?

  2. Better get out to BC soon! The Sage Thrashers are thrashing, and the Willy Saps and sucking their last sips of sap before slipping into a secretive summer of post-nesting obscurity!

  3. Brian Winchester says:

    Doing Awesome Matt! Julie and I are rooting for you to hit 500! Keep up the awesome posts!

  4. Glad to see things are going well. Keep it up!

  5. For those interested, it seems that the apparent Canada record is 444–set by Michael Bentley in 1999. This does not include splits since that year.
