This is Robin forwarding Bill's texts. I hope everyone is enjoying his posts as much as I am, and is supporting his amazing effort.
Bill wrote at 5:50 this morning that yesterday he was at mile 141, and species 122. He saw a Bell's Vireo and a Blackpoll Warbler, and was expecting rain all day.
A 1:32 pm update was not quite as grim as rain hadn't shown up yet. Species 123 was an Orchard Oriole. His 4:18 update gave his species at 125 with a Cliff Swallow, and a Cedar Waxwing (and a bit later added Forster's Tern, for #126). He is just outside Mazomanie and has walked over ten miles today. He's 60% complete in approximate miles for the trip. He is hoping for at least 35 more species in his total.
