The Bolivar Peninsula CBC was held today and in spite of the high winds during daylight hours we had a good preliminary count of 168 species.
Some of the great birds reported today where:
Sandhill Crane Pomarine Jaeger White-winged Scoter Cackling Goose Canada Goose Black Tern Tennessee Warbler Swainson's Hawk Least Flycatcher
For me the highlight was a record number of owls we found owling last night. From 3 am to 6:30 am we recorded an astounding 54, yes that FIFTY-FOUR Barn owls. We also recorded 5 Short-eared Owls and a single unidentified owl. We covered 32 miles and had 60 owls total for .53 owls per mile!
