Subject: [cobirds] Fountain Creek CBC 12-18-19 preliminary results
This past Wednesday we had 38 gracious volunteers participate in the 13th
Fountain Creek Christmas Bird Count. It started out a brisk and
count-record-cold 5 degrees Fahrenheit but was pleasantly in the 40s
eventually. The ground was mostly snow covered.

Observers reported a near-average 84 species and 6099 birds including 21
not identifiable down to species.

Two new species for the count were recorded, a House Wren at Heritage Park
in Fountain and a Cassin's Finch on Frost Ranch (private). Some other fun
birds, for example, include Sora, Western Screech Owl, Ladder-backed
Woodpecker, Lewis's Woodpecker, Loggerhead and Northern Shrikes, Marsh and
Bewick's Wrens, Curve-billed Thrasher, Gray Catbird, Lincoln,
White-throated and Swamp Sparrows and plenty of Canyon Towhees.

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the
old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.
