Bird Counts

CBC 2008 Bird counts

On January 1, 2009 sandwiched between snow storms the 25th 3CBC was held as part of Audubon's 109th Christmas Bird Count. 13 field observers and 7 feeder watchers joined the party and spent the mostly rainy day searching for some 9,895 party loving birds.
The temperature ranged from 38° to 48° with winds out of the southwest at 0-5 mph.

We had several all-time high counts- they are marked by H. Low counts are marked with a L. Seen in count week = CW.

Plan now for the 26th Annual 3CBC on January 1, 2010.
