Monticello Christmas Count (Sullivan County)

Today, Lance Verderame and I completed our sector of the Monticello Christmas Count area. We had a pretty good day with 31 species seen in our area, 621 individuals. Clean up at Kiamesha Lake at the end of the day yielded another 4 species. Additionally, we had another 4 species for count week. Here is our list with the totals for each species.
