We finished the year with 281 species, gaining five in December. This is lowest total we've had in recent years, I believe. The mean for the the last five years is 293. However, there is some compensation in that we added two new species to the countly list during the year. Within a day of each other Mike Mammoser found a YELLOW-THROATED VIREO, and Mike Rogers found a GLOSSY IBIS. Both were enjoyed by many.

Wrapping up 2001, Ann Verdi found an immature YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER at the Alamitos Ground Water Recharge pond next to the SCVWD headquarters off Almaden on 2 Dec. The next day, Bob Reiling and Frank Vanslager found a family of TUNDRA SWANS in the New Chicago Marsh. Mike Rogers picked off an adults SWAMP SPARROW near the waste water outfall at the Palo Alto Baylands on 14 Dec. On the San Jose CBC, Mike Mammoser found a very late SHARP-TAILED SANDPIPER at the New Chicago Marsh. Finally, while banding along Coyote Creek below Tasman, Sherry Hudson and Gina Barton saw a GREEN-TAILED TOWHEE. One wintered here two years ago (also in the mid-1990s)
