Sunday evening iNaturalist update

One day left! There's still some easy ones to get. And some we KNOW are out there, just hard to photograph or record. And others have been reported to me, but not yet entered (only about five of these), so I haven't yet removed them from the list. 
When you enter, be sure the location is entered. Otherwise it doesn't get included into our city challenge.
I'll try to do one more update in the early afternoon, just in case one more bird is near you.
Here's the link to how we're doing:
We are only 24 species behind San Francisco!! And in fourth place for the number of observers!
Again, thanks so much!
