Doing the bird census in a pouring down rain can be challenging but I am not complaining because the rain was badly needed. When we started out there were American Robins everywhere we looked. It is really hard to estimate robins when they are flying every which way. There were still around 700 Snow and Ross's Geese present. The gulls were not congregating on the sandbars like they have been for the past week and we did not located the rare Glaucous Gull. We once again found the flock of 11 Inca Doves near a residence north of the refuge. At Goode we saw 83 American Goldfinches in one tree. There are still a lot of Red-tailed Hawks and we saw 21 including a Harlan's and a Krider's Red-tailed Hawk. We finished the day with 76 species, not bad for a day with low visibility and so much rain. https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S43039492 Jack Chiles, Texas master naturalist and volunteer, Hagerman NWR.
