Happy New Year!

To start off 2011 I thought I would share some statistics from 2010. I am able to track traffic on this blog so I went back and dug up the numbers from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010.
Total number of visits to this blog: 281,520 (average of 771/day)
Number of UNIQUE visitors to this blog: 57,969

The highest traffic day was MAY 19, 2010 with 6,097 visits that day from 3,276 unique visitors. Hmmm...what was going on May 19th??! Yup! That was the day the eggs began to hatch! (4,440 of the visits on May 19 were from Ohio.)

The lowest traffic day was January 24, 2010 with 33 unique visitors checking in.

All in all, visits to the blog came from 71 different countries using 45 different languages!!
Within the United States, Ohioans checked in most: 192,658 visits from 606 cities in the Buckeye State.

The most visited page during the entire year was the July 1st update "An Unexpected Loss-Scout with over 800 page views. [There is still no further news on the investigation but rest assured, when information is able to be released I will have it here.]

for reading this blog, watching the cams and supporting the ODNR, Division of Wildlife's Columbus Peregrine Falcon Project!

P.S. Although the nestbox cam has been down for a bit, we will be working to get everything operational in preparation for the 2011 nesting season. Thanks for your patience!
