Here are the highlights from the Benton Co. NAMC on May 13, 2006.  With most of the reports in, a total of 116 species were seen by 7 parties and 3 feeder watchers.  I've listed species that have been seen fifty percent or less of the time during Spring Counts.  Also listed with numbers are species that set new high counts for the period that I've been a Compiler (starting in 1995).  A "T" after the number means that it tied the high count.

Note: I've added some information on locations that wasn't included in previous postings.
