264 American bird species, video

This video from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA says about itself:

Fast Forward Through a 264-Species Birding Big Day

Apr 3, 2013

On April 27, 2012, the expert birders on Team Sapsucker recorded 264 species in 24 hours—a pace of 11 new species every hour of the day, including before dawn and after sunset. This video condenses those 24 hours into 4 minutes. Watch as the birds flash by.

Note: Video shows 236 of the 264 species seen. These photos were not taken during the Big Day.

Big Day is the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s largest conservation fundraiser of the year.
