I ran my BBS route just in the nick of time yesterday. This route bears the name of the Lance Rosier Unit but doesn't actually enter the unit, its starts at the entrance sign. I had 48 species in total. 290 vehicles passed me (5.8 per stop) all but 2 stops are on TX770 and TX326.
It got hot fast, It broke 90 degrees by 8:30 am and finished at 95. The heat, traffic, and development made for low numbers on the last 10 stops.
Nothing terribly surprising other than I has to write in 5 species, White-winged Dove (inevitable no doubt), Eastern Wood-Pewee, Gray Catbird (at 3 stops), Red-winged Blackbird, and Louisiana Waterthrush. My guess is running it at this late date accounts for the numbers of write ins.
