Bird Counts

Cowlitz Columbia CBC Results

Greater Yellowlegs (Photo: USFWS)Br-r-r it was cold for our 30th Annual Cowlitz Columbia Christmas Bird Count, but there was no wind or rain (What a difference that makes!).

19 field observers and 4 feeder watchers enjoyed discovering 100 Species and 14,528 individual birds. We also had 6 additional species, we managed to miss on count day, reported within the count week,. The temperature ranged from 19° to 37°. We had a scrumptious potluck afterwards.

Thank you to all that helped.

We had a large number of all-time high counts - they are marked by HC. Low counts are marked with a LC. Seen in count week = CW.  NC = Means new to our count.

Plan now for the 31th Annual 3CBC on January 1, 2012. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.
