Counting birds in the rain

The public participation component of the Breeding Bird Survey that took place on Saturday June 11 suffered under the rain, reports John Tschopp. Volunteers had to pass up some locations altogether because of steady rain.

On Sunday, the weather window sent John out scouting some of the missed locations.

He advises:

The Lazuli Buntings are numerous at Riverlands. The Purple Finches at our feeder are really purple. The Bullock’s Oriole at Erickson Rd must be feeding nestlings. It arrived near the nest with food in its beak.
