Rock Cut Christmas Bird Count (112) Final Results

Here are the results from the Rock Cut Christmas Bird Count [12/28/11] (CBC #112). I was delayed tallying them do to the CBC website being upgraded.

The big highlights were a GOLDEN EAGLE and a ROSS’S GOOSE. We also tallied 7 more species than our high year (the first year of the count). Notable misses were the “roadside snow birds”: Lapland Longspurs, Snow Buntings, and Horned Larks because we had no snow!

Thanks to all that participated!
