What exactly was the monument you were going to see?

Sounds like you had a fabulous time. Do you keep a list somewhere of bird species you've seen?

I'll be posting about that later. ;)

My Eastern bird book has a checklist in the front I've been using. Doesn't include Rocky Mountain/California species, though, and I've fallen behind and not notated the ones I saw in Florida yet. Basically...a bit messy and getting messier!
