Year List 2016

I am going to return to 2014’s format and list each new bird by date.  This seems to be a bit easier to compile.  Hopefully it will be easier to read.  I will try to send in a few checklists from eBird as well.

Each day that year birds are seen will be listed along with the locale and species added.  I’m not sure how to do a continuous number list besides cutting and pasting from Word so the species will be bulleted and numbered.
