I don't have specifics, but I'm sure several birders from Abbotsford and Mission will want to participate in the Agassiz-Harrison and Chilliwack counts again this year if it works out. I can talk to Lynn Miller and others if you have one or more openings. I'm not sure if any of us will make it to the meeting on the 13th.
Last year Lynn and I did the Lake Erroch - Harrison Bay area of the Chilliwack count, and I did area E of the Agassiz - Harrison count. Three of us did that same area the previous year.
If you want us to take the same areas this time, I think that would work, or let me know if you have something else in mind.
By all means, bring as many people as are interested in coming. I remember last year almost having to take on more routes to cover the whole area. A bit of a balancing act when you have too much ground to cover as you cover more ground but are less effective in accurately (as possible) counting what is there.
Maybe see you on the 13th, and if not, we can coordinate in getting routes to you that are not covered or covered by someone with a large area to cover in the first place. Ill see, if there is to be extra routes, that they are the ones you have done for the last couple of years.
