Bell County Christmas Bird Count

I looked up all the local CBCs and hoped to attend at least one. Then I broke my ankle. I managed to complete a couple of commitments (two hikes could NOT be cancelled at the last minute - I simply could not cancel), but I figured a CBC was out. [I have fond memories of the days after prior CBCs when I could barely get outta bed!]

Then I was drafted for our local count - all I had to do was sit in the car at one pond. I was responsible for 2 rare birds (that just happen to show up there with regularity) and the usual cast of characters at those ponds. I was NOT responsible for the ducks. I am bad with ducks although I'm working on it.

By 9:00 a.m. yesterday I had both rare birds. Woohoo!

I'm slowly getting the observations in here (a number of photos are really bad and may not make it). It has taken me some time to get eBird finished. [Shhhh! Don't tell them there are 2 or three birds I have photos of, but no id yet.]

Anyway. I'm posting my list and blog post here just to keep everything together. Those magical hikes were pretty cool too. I might just include that post as well.

Hope everyone has a great time over the holidays!

CBC: eBird # 562298873
