First, *rescheduling this Saturday's Pawnee National Grassland-East CBC* because of upcoming snowstorm, New Raymer-area is looking at 3-6 inches and blizzard-like winds. We will conduct the *Pawnee National Grassland-East CBC Thursday, January 2nd*, meet 0830 at the cafe in New Raymer (south side of Hwy 14).
The Nunn CBC had a large turnout of people, and the greatest weather EVER! ... unfortunately birds were historically low in numbers with species close to normal.
- We found two Rough-legged Hawk ;-) - Common Raven - 28 (record!) most found at a cow carcass, competing with a Golden Eagle - Lapland Longspur - 6 - Ring-necked Pheasant - 1 (rare for this count) - Beating the averages: Bald Eagle, Red-tailed Hawk, Rock Pigeon, Eurasian-collared Dove, Northern Flicker, American Kestrel, Black-billed Magpie, American Crow, European Starling, Dark-eyed Junco, and Western Meadowlark
