It was a good bird count this year. On a trip to Branched Oak Lake in Raymond, NE we counted 17 Bald Eagles, and a day earlier someone saw 106! They're migrating now, and the numbers are quite mind boggling for a species that was down to a couple hundred breeding pairs in the 70's.

Species total for the four days was 25!
Hundreds, and hundreds of birds.
*But wait* There's MORE!
If you like keeping track of birds, you don't need to wait for next year. ebird.org goes year-round.
I knew you'd be excited.
