The 25th annual Big Sit at the Elfin Forest yesterday talled 95 species seen or heard from the observation platform at Bush Lupine Point. Highlights included Vaux's Swift, Red-breasted Sapsucker, White-faced Ibis, a large flock of Ravens, and many Osprey flying around us (as many as 4 in the air at once with 2 others perched on snags). Our total was lower than usual, which continues the overall decline of species observed on this annual October Big Sit. For complete results see:
