Subject: [NEBirds] Scotts Bluff County Fall Bird Count
The Wildcat Audubon Society conducted the annual Scotts Bluff County Fall
Bird count yesterday, Sept 29th. We had a record species count of 91 plus
the sapsucker sp. but we did have some extra help. Mark and Ed Brogie, Dan
Weidemann and Boni Edwards helped along with Wildcat Audubon members, Alice
Kenitz. Marie Smith, Gwen Smith and myself. We had one nice day of weather
yesterday so that also helped.

We birded Old Stage Hill Rd, Wildcat Hills Nature Center and SRA, ponds east
of Scottsbluff, Winter's Creek Lake area, Kiowa WMA area and a few places
