Map of winter progress

Winter Progress, February 2002

Black=Threshold cleared
Dark Gray=>90% of target number of species recorded
Light Gray=Data received
White: No data

Even though, at this writing, the winter is not quite over and we have not yet received all winter data, we have enough to say that our ultimate level of coverage for winter will be virtually the same as in the breeding season, with the threshold cleared in 95% of the squares. Even those few squares still short of their thresholds were covered well, with only two left with no data at all: as in the breeding season, C4, entirely within Camp Pendleton's Whiskey Impact Area, plus D13, entirely within the Pauma Indian Reservation. Though this is one square more than in the breeding season, I think we can still congratulate ourselves on the amazing thoroughness of our coverage. The advisory group and I decided that it was best to ensure we could reach the threshold in the squares where this was actually feasible rather than to divert our effort to difficult areas where our coverage could be no more than superficial.

Thanks very much again to our attack squad, which scoured the county plugging the holes of uncleared squares, even in the most difficult and desolate areas, so low on birds in this year of drought.

I'm delighted to have a long list of squares in which to acknowledge the phenomenal efforts of our faithful observers:
