Cheryl Cobbs and Sonia Santa Anna joined my sub-team today that officially started counting about 7 a.m. after helping Tom Horner by spreading seeds on the bare area in the Pit and driving over to our count area. It was a cold 43F when we started and about 65F when we ended. The early morning fog eventually disappeared, but it was cloudy most of the day.

Our best birds were a male and a female or immature male Townsend's Warbler. However, the Peregrine Falcon, which only Cheryl and Sonia saw and the three sightings of Merlin were top notch. It was nice to get a male Barrow's Goldeneye, but some of our target birds never showed up.

After Cheryl and Sonia departed (all other Falcon Area counters had already gone home), I walked to the Pond overlook, picking up an immature Cooper's Hawk; 7 Purple Finches were perched near the Pit and Tom's sub-team only reported 2 so I added 5 to my eBird list; and 6 Western Bluebirds in the black locusts and since Tom's team only reported 2, I added 4 to my eBird list.

It was a great day for the count, as rain had been predicted earlier in the week. The flood last year made some modifications in our count area that caused us to miss a section because it is now unaccessible.

My sub-team area was practically devoid of non-bird species. We only saw three does and 2 eastern fox squirrels.
