Austin Christmas Bird Count

As usual, I participated in the Austin Christmas Bird Count this year on Saturday, December 14, on the Hornsby Bend team. All day long we found 102 species at Hornsby Bend. I led a morning group on my monthly survey route, from the birding shelter upriver to the "old crossing" on the Platt property. My morning group found 68 species. Here's my morning eBird list:

And here's a list from the afternoon covering the SE corner of the property:

And attached are iNat observations made during the day. Highlights included Rusty Blackbirds, Ringed Kingfisher, Vermilion Flycatcher, and Least Grebes.
