Here are the totals from the 2016 Christmas Bird Count. It was a productive day thanks in large part to everyone who helped out. On behalf of PIBO, thanks to Karen F., Alyssa and Matt S., Ron T., Kim G., Brian and Lisa K., Kirk G. and family, and Fred and Debbie B. These results have been sent to our friends in Ohio who will include them in the official Erie Islands count.
