Saturday was a beautiful day although it began at 27 degrees F. The clear
skies and abundant sunshine quickly brought the temperature to around 50 degrees.
Most water areas were pretty much iced over but there was some open water.
Tentative count was an unimpressive 67 species. The lower count mainly
attributable to the lack of waterfowl species. Some of the special aspects of the count
included:

TRUMPETER SWAN, 7 (5 adults, 2 juveniles)
Snow Goose, @20,000 flyovers
Ross's Goose
Common Goldeneye, over 100
*Raptors:
   Bald Eagle
   Northern Harrier
   Sharp-shinned Hawk
   Cooper's Hawk
   Red-tailed Hawk
   Rough-legged Hawk
   American Kestrel
   PRAIRIE FALCON

Killdeer, 5
PILEATED WOODPECKER, 2
Red-breasted Nuthatch
Golden-crowned Kinglet
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Northern Mockingbird
Loggerhead Shrike
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Eastern and Western Meadowlarks
Purple Finch
Pine Siskin

Ival Lawhon will be compiling the complete count list.
