WGBC 2011 comes to a close

I'd like to congratulate the winners of the Green Birding Challenge for 2011.

The official winners and tallies...

Daniel Schneider with a monstrous 240 birds, breaking Scott Baughman's epic record of 234 from 2010. (And ironically, from what I heard, Scott humbly helped Daniel find the birds that broke his record)  Bernie Sloan came in second with 207 birds, followed by Andy Paulios and Kim Kreitinger (tied with 197) and Kay Kavanaugh (179). Scott Baughmann, undoubtedly recuperating from 2010 still managed 175 birds!

The 2012 challenge is already under way with several birders reaching 30 species within the first few days of the year.
