The evening of the count please e mail your data to Cruz. If your initial data was a draft then within 3 days after the count, we recommend that you download the Word file, put your final totals on it, then e-mail it to Cruz as an attachment. The email address is on the form.
(For 2020 disregard the following as we have cancelled the compilation dinner) On count day: Its critical that one representative from your group attend the dinner to share your results. Or, you can e mail Cruz by 5:00pm or sooner if at all possible (address is on form) to give her your results so that your work can be shared with others at the compilation. Or perhaps you can hand off your results to someone who is attending the compilation. One way or another, your results or a comprehensive list of the highlights of every group must be available at the compilation dinner.
Be prepared to take notes and photos of unusual sightings.
Have fun birding and be safe! Thanks for participating.
Cruz, Kate, and Mark
