Tis the season to spend all day in the cold counting birds! We had a beautiful, clear, and very cold Christmas Bird Count today. We tallied 27 local bird species on Zoo grounds! Highlights included a pair of red shouldered hawks, two black phoebes, a lesser goldfinch, and three Nuttall’s woodpeckers. Yes, we count the mallards and wood ducks on the lake, they are Zoo visitors! Just off grounds at the nearest pond we found a pair of belted kingfishers, and spotted a black-throated gray warbler in an oak tree in the park. Happy Birding!
