Christmas Bird Count results

Posted on Monday 7 January 2013

Ten teams of birders had a very successful day of birding in the Mad River Valley and Northfield/Roxbury area. The weather was perfect, and we had almost twice the number of birds last year. I know some of us were hoping for more species, we have just about the same number we usually have. We had 38 species reported by teams, 2 more added by feeder watchers (Purple Finch and Pine Siskins) and 2 more species (so far) added for Count Week birds ( Coopers Hawk and Barred Owl). We ended the day with a great potluck held at CrossHaven Farm, generously hosted by Scott and Pat Sainsbury.

Thanks to everyone who participated by being on a team, feeder watching, filling feeders for us.
