Evening update for iNaturalist (8:45 pm)

Thanks! We've added more! 
Remember iNaturalist counts three things: total number of species, total number of observers, and total number of observations. So even if you enter only one bird, that'll count for another observer AND another observation! All House Finches count!
Here's the latest needs list:
