I've pulled together a list of species seen over the weekend on Governors
Island by collating the data from 10 checklists (8 from Sat. and 2 from
Sun.) by extracting the Common Names of species seen (excluding taxa ie.
crow sp.) from the checklist view using Excel.

The highest individual checklist was 34 spp. The aggregate for both days is
45 spp. Below is a list of the uncommon species for New York County and a
complete list for the weekend.
