Fifteenth CoBus Sterling Christmas Count

December 23, 2018

Richard Stevens:

High temperature was 48 degrees today.  Winds were 4-5 mph with gusts to 10 mph.

Today we conducted the fifteen CoBus Sterling Christmas Count.  Four birders and five feeder watchers were involved.

North Sterling Reservoir offered some interesting birds.  These included a Barn Owl, Long-eared Owl, Iceland Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, two Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Harris's Sparrow and Swamp Sparrow.

Unfortunately no Snow Buntings and Common Redpolls were found.

Birders watching their feeders added two Harris's Sparrows, White-throated Sparrow, Northern Cardinal and Common Redpoll.

Total count will be in a future "Colorado Field Notes".
