Steve Holzman and I tallied the results from the 45th Yaquina Bay CBC. His talents at data management are beyond helpful and I want to send out an extra thanks to him for it. Here are the highlights:
Field teams and feeder counters tallied a total of 149 species on December 30, 2017.
High counts for all 45 years were found for the following species with the count figure in () : Canada Goose (634) Northern Pintail (1289) Red-shouldered Hawk (9) Snowy Plover (16) Eurasian Collared Dove (148) Anna's Hummingbird (89) Downy Woodpecker (15) Pileated Woodpecker (4) Gray Jay (31) Bushtit (74) Brown Creeper (15) Yellow-rumped Warbler (83) Pine Siskin (947)
There were four new species for the count. Those were White-winged Crossbill, Sabine's Gull, Booby sp. (most likely Brown according to Phil Pickering), and Hermit Warbler. I want to take one more moment to thank the greater OBOL community for their outpouring of support to Oscar and Hendrik. It heartened me to see everyone come together in this way. Thank you all so very much.
