Hey Tweets....On Jan 1, 25 hardy souls participated in the 49th Annual
Grays Harbor CBC. It was a very high tide mid-survey and (more importantly)
cold but no rain fell on us, and the birding was pretty amazing.
We found a total of 124 species, with two CW additions, and a grand total
of 32,063 birds. Outstanding numbers were seen for Fox Sparrows....731
Hermit Thrush....60
Dark-eyed Juncos...532
Bald Eagles...51
Red-shouldered Hawk...2
Rough-legged Hawk...1
Trumpeter Swan...21 in 3 areas completely separate
And the biggest surprise
Varied Thrush....1,463!
Missing altogether, Red-breasted Nuthatch is the one that I missed
The count week birds were a good addition with seven Long-billed Curlews in
Westport & a Black-legged Kittiwake off the Westport jetty.
It was perhaps the best birding I have seen and a good time was had by all.
I am very grateful to all who participated.
