A Great Horned on a light pole was the first bird of the day. White-crowned Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, and Black-capped Chickadees were abundant. We beat last year's total by one, so we had 21 species. This year it was not nearly as cold as it was last year which made for a much more pleasant morning. There were a half dozen other species we would have expected to easily see. Can you believe we didn't see a single Mourning Dove?! John stayed around afterward and saw Yellow-rumped Warblers and even four Stellar's Jays, an Avimor first!
