The 32nd Denver Urban Christmas count had, at the compilation dinner, recorded 84 species. (Average 83). We still have all the feeder counts and 4 or 5 of the count sections left to report, so we probably will add to that total.
So far, of course, I don't have any numbers. However, on our section, Rocky Mtn. Arsenal Natl.Wildlife Refuge, we had 33 species, the lowest number except for two counts (1995, 1990).
Also the lowest number of birds, save for a flock of 1500 geese that flew over at 2 in the afternoon. All species came in below average numbers except Mallards and Green-winged Teal. We didn't do a roost count, so we can't really compare the number of Bald Eagles to past counts.
Also, because of bison in the area, we couldn't walk the Homestead, which typically produces birds we don't find in other places.
