Even with the difficult weather conditions, the Christmas Bird Count at Santa Ana NWR was outstanding. There were 12 birders who tracked through the mud and tolerated the rain to count 760 birds and 69 species. We covered the part of the refuge that the bird walks follow.
We would love to see you come out for our daily bird walks, except Sundays, at 8:30 AM. Cheers to all those who participated or or planning to participate in the CBC, 2019.
