> The 50th annual Bend Christmas Bird Count was held in unseasonably warm weather on Saturday. While last year's count featured over a foot and a half of snow and temperatures in the 20s, this year there was no snow on the ground, open water and temps in the upper 40s.

> Pending results from feeder counters, we ended up with 94 species, 5th highest ever. The best birds were the Emperor Goose (1st record), which has been around for the past month, Common Redpoll, (2nd record) found on count day, Purple Finch (3rd record), and Harris's Sparrow (7th record), also around for a month. The biggest misses were Hermit Thrush (seen every day before and after the count), Canvasback, Wood Duck and Barred Owl (all seen count week).

Species with low number totals were Pinyon Jay (2), American Crow (3) and Western Bluebird (35).
