More birds than you should shake a stick at

This year's World Series of Birding winning teams tied by spotting 228 species each.  For those unfamiliar with the event, it means they saw all 228 species in New Jersey in a specified 24 hour period.  Hard to know how to compare this to the Superbowl, but 228 is not bad for a state whose image is more refineries, sprawl, and highways than wetlands and meadows.
