A recap of our second survey of the birds of Deer Run – December 19th, 2007
[read about the D.R.B.S.]
As the other Deer Run Bird Surveyor, Birdfreak, slaved away at work, his sister Veery tromped around solo, doing one of the survey loops. Walking was mildly difficult in the snowmobile ruts.
I (Veery) began this survey around 8 a.m. with bright sunshine, three-day-old snow, and a balmy 28 degrees.
The usual suspects – American Tree Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos, and Black-capped Chickadees draped the trees and many Northern Cardinals stood out against the bright sun.
All-in-all, a decent survey.
Total Species: 19 / Total Number of Birds: 112
