Subject: [texbirds] White River Lake CBC highlights
The White River Lake CBC was held on 28 December 2019. We had eleven
participants (BB=Brandon Best, JCl= Jeremy Clark, JCr=Jm Crites,
MDL=Manuel De Leon, DH=Drew Harvey, AH=Anthony Hewetson, JJ=Jan
Jannett, BK=Barry Keith, PKi=Phillip Kite, RK=Rich Kostecke, Rob
Lee).

We had 110 species - which was about average - but numbers were, for
the most part low. It still seems as though winter has yet to arrive,
a recent burn on the north end of the lake has taken out quite a bit
of songbird habitat (but it should be pretty good when the habitat
recovers), and recent rains cost a couple of us access to some spots
but ... everybody seemed to have a pretty good time.

Highlights were: (CR=Crosby County, DI=Dickens County):
