Arlene Borko and I went out to scope out my Christmas Bird Count area for next weeks upcoming count. We had some nice birds this morning. Here is the list of the highlights of the 25 species seen:

American Black Duck 20
Common Merganser 15
Bald Eagle 12
Red-shouldered Hawk 2
Turkey 3
Belted Kingfisher 1
Common Raven 1
Pileated Woodpecker 1
Purple Finch 1

Not bad for just a couple of hours. Hopefully a full day will provide many more birds.
