The numbers are in and added up from Pemberton’s cold Christmas Bird Count on December 15.
John Tschopp shares that the cold is reflected in the lower bird number, but the species number is surprisingly high.
The surprise of the day was a Barn Owl at McEwans. A white-throated Sparrow was also a rare visitor.
