Hi all,
For those of us who keep track of bird sightings, as well as numbers of birds 
(eg., participating on Christmas Bird Counts, Summer Bird Counts, hawk-watches, 
sea-watches, feeder-watches, eBird, etc.), it is important to get an accurate 
count. Here is a link to an excellent lesson (part 1 of 2) on estimating 


Like anything else, this skill can be improved with practice.
