The 2017 LC Valley CBC was conducted on Sunday, December 17th. Twenty-five birders (10 teams and 6 feeder watchers) documented 93 bird species in the count circle. Participants cumulatively spent 56.5 hours, drove 217 miles and hiked 22.2 miles in pursuit of birds.   Although the general impression of count participants was that overall numbers of birds were lower than in most years, we had some interesting finds. Highlights include Lesser Black-backed Gulls, an American Dipper, a Snow Bunting, Gray-crowned Rosy Finches, and Common Redpolls. The Palm Warbler discovered at Mann Lake in November was also found on count day. The snow storm preceding the count apparently pushed many Horned Larks in to the area, with 920 birds being counted. Count week birds were sparse this year with only Common Loon and Thayer’s Gull being reported (let me know if I’m missing anything).

Thanks to all those who participated in the count and Happy Holidays!
