Good Afternoon Everyone,

First off, I just want to thank you all for the great support and turnout
Saturday during our bird count; it was a very nice start for 2014 and near
record number on species for our monthly counts. We had approximately 19
people counting, this included 3 groups on the east bank, one person on the
bayou, and 2 at Bay Area Park. For purposes of counting and entering data,
we separate the entries for Armand Bayou and Bay Area Park; however, so we
know how many species we had for the day, we combine the 2 during our
count-down. 

The results yielded 77 species between all areas. Highlights included 7
species of sparrow (unusual for the count were le conte's, and song),
Wilsons Snipe, red-headed woodpecker, black-necked stilt, and black skimmer
(bayou). For the full list, please see below, I have included both areas.

Next month, we plan to expand this a bit more, possibly moving to a few
additional areas of the nature center: including U&H Clear Lake, if we have
the people. If you have friends or know other birders that may be
interested, please feel free to share this with them. 

Thank you again for the fun morning and I hope you all had a great time!

Next bird count is scheduled for Saturday, February 8, 2014.
