The county quest 2012 has come to a close and we've given you a few extra
days to enter anything that may be lingering for the year. We are now
checking the list and checking in rare species. We should have the totals
in the next week and a big announcement with all the winners. It sure was a
fun year filled with great sightings.

Meanwhile, here's the first awards. Congratulations to all the new members
of the County Quest 150 Club. Those are folks that have found at least 150
species in a county during a year. In 2012 we added 18 new members in 8
counties. We even had our first members for 3 counties! Check it all out at

Did you miss the 150 club this year? Now is the time to grab those
binoculars and log in those checklists. The County Quest 2013 is just 5
days old. What are you waiting for? Join the dedicated bird watchers of the
Green Mountain State!

Thanks for eBirding,
