Hello all:

Just to follow up on Cliff's note, we're just getting started on the 
biggest year ever in bird surveys in remote northern Ontario. The first 
of 16 mostly four person crews is now in place on the shore of James 
Bay. This summer, crews will be providing coverage of areas as remote as 
the Pen Islands (on Hudson Bay by the Manitoba border) and Cape 
Henrietta Maria (where James and Hudson Bays meet), with work additional 
occurring on the Shammattawa, Ekwan, Attawapiskat, Albany, Moose, 
Kabinakagami, Fawn and Winisk Rivers - as well as on Caribou and 
Michipicoten Islands in Lake Superior.

I just wanted to thank everyone who is taking part for helping to 
illuminate bird distribution and relative abundance across this vast 
wilderness, and wish them the best of luck for a successful expedition.
