Subject: [texbirds] Dougherty Breeding Bird Survey - Full Report
Greetings All:

On 6/3/18 I completed the Dougherty BBS - which runs from the intersection
of CR 293 x CR 290 by way of CR 290, CR 121, and CR 318 to the intersection
of CR 318 x FM 35. Temperatures ranged from 62 to 71, sky cover was partly
cloudy throughout, and the winds slowly ramped up from 0 to 10 mph. Things
were extremely dry - this route passes by well over twenty playas and the
only water present was puddles in two dig-outs - and crittering was slow
with relatively low numbers for all the birds tallied. Without further
ado, the list (highlight in bold):
