Steve Dilks and I chose the birds of Stoddard County
for our GBBC today. Therefore we counted birds at Mingo National Wildlife
Refuge and Otter Slough CA. We tallied 75 species and 19 of them had only
one bird. As you know you can count only the number you see at one
time. We estimated 6,000 Snow Geese at Otter Slough. We left at 7
a.m. and got back at 7 p.m. It was sunny all day but very cold and windy
while walking the boardwalk at Otter.
