[A special field report from Josh Van Weiren, Park Ecologist / Ecosystem Scientist, Thousand Islands National Park]
Thanks again to all that attended this years 1000 Islands Christmas Bird Count!

Thanks to those that helped cover additional ground this year with long hikes through 1000 Islands National Park properties on Hill Island and Landon Bay! I've attached an excel sheet with our observations (broken into sample units if you're interested), otherwise a quick summary of our results is found below:
