One Response to Green Big Day 2012 results spreadsheet

  1. Hi Scott,

    I just came across this website. Cool stuff!

    For what it’s worth, I did a big day entirely on foot (walking) with Abby Darrah at Tiputini Biodiversity Station, Ecuador, on February 19, 2012. We found 233 species; perhaps the best bird was a Fiery Topaz. Here’s a summary of our day:

    I also did a big day on foot in Eugene, Oregon last year (May 10, 2011) and found 123 species. I haven’t heard of a higher walking big day total in the US, though I’m sure there are more productive places to try one.

    Cheers –

    Noah Strycker
