Hello all,The 45th Walla Walla Christmas Bird Count was held on
December 15 - happily a NICE day between many days of wind and rain.
76 Species were found with SANDHILL CRANE new to the count.Several
records were broken - the expected ones like Eurasian Collared-Dove -
414 compared to 392 last year. Lesser Goldfinches continue to expand
with 223 found this year - real increase over 97 last year. 6 Anna's
Hummingbirds were reported - not surprising in this mild weather.And
lastly over 12000 starlings were reported - SE Walla Walla is
inundated with huge flocks of these birds - because of the
vineyards.Fifteen Western Bluebirds were a nice find on Biscuit Ridge
Rd and the Bennington Lake counters were treated to great views of an
adult Northern Goshawk.Misses - Pileated Woodpecker, C. Goldeneye -
first miss in 10 years, and Bufflehead - usually found in open water
years.Happy CBC'ing, MerryLynn
