2016 La Crosse Area Christmas Bird Counts
Saturday, December 17, 2016
This year, we had 27 reports from 29 available sections and we also had 41 feeder counts. Conditions were poor, but we still were able to find just over 12,000 birds of 66 species. That included some great species that are normally unusual for this count. The best were a Rose-breasted Grosbeak and White-winged Scoters, but other unusual species included Northern Saw-whet Owl, Hooded Merganser, Red-breasted Merganser, Winter Wren, Northern Harrier, Fox Sparrow, Trumpeter Swans, and Golden Eagles. Great results on a tough day to count!!
Effort-wise, we had 48 section counters and 45 feeder counters who contributed over 330 hours of effort. That is truly impressive and I want to say thanks again for your help with this year's La Crosse Area Christmas Bird Count!!!
I hope that you had a great holiday season and that the new year is a great one!
Here is the final count.
Thanks again for your help,
