The Rock Cut Christmas Bird Count, brand new for 2008, is only two days away (Sunday) and we are excited! We hope to get good numbers of the following “snow birds”.

How beautiful! Almost makes me miss those cold snowy days in Urbana when I’d be out shoveling and have Lapspurs fly over; no matter how fogged my glasses and how frozen my nose, I’d always look up.
Good luck on the new CBC
That Horned Lark pic is the best.
That Lapland Longspur is gorgeous! I am getting excited to begin our CBCs in Fall River Mills, California, this Sunday. The first of three in our local area of Northern California. We counted 119 species last year including many raptors, geese, ducks and other water fowl plus a lone Mountain Bluebird! We logged 97 species on a trip up there just 4 weeks ago when the weather was good. Weather calls for snow Sunday but we should get lots of water birds and raptors and have a great time doing it. Oh how I love this time of year and the CBCs.
Have a great time Sunday and get some of those super photos for us will ya?
The Lapland longspur’s so CUTE!
