The December monthly bird survey of the River Walk trail will take place this Saturday, the 9th of the month. Jim Rowoth will lead us. The trail is in pretty good shape, given the long interval since the last rain. The survey meets at the Visitor Center parking lot off Franklin Blvd. at 06:45. The forecast is for a chilly start (low 30s) warming through the morning to the mid-50s. There's a nice mix of birds to be seen these days, including a striking crane individual. It is a leucistic sandhill that from any distance appears entirely white, excepting the red crown patch. It usually roosts on the Lost Slough parcel west of Franklin Blvd.
