While overall numbers are certainly lower, some groups had busy days, including team #11 counting in Harleyville and The Bend of Four Holes Swamp.
We had a great count yesterday. We had 15 Sandhill Cranes, about 100 American Pipits, and 7 Wilson's Snipe as highlights for us. We had not previously recorded pipits or snipe in the past 3 years on this territory. The pipits prevented us from reaching Giant Cement on time, so you can blame them! The Giant Cement property did prove fruitful, giving us some wading birds, Bald Eagles, and Fox Sparrows.

Keep watching this space! We'll post the results of the CBC as soon as the counters of the remaining three areas send in their data sheets.
