Christmas Bird Count - 2013

Padilla Bay Christmas Bird Count
December 28th, 2013

Sixty-eight birdwatchers spent a cloudy, but pleasant day counting birds in western Skagit County for the National Audubon Society’s 114th annual Christmas Bird Count.  Below are the results of their efforts – Tim Manns: count organizer, Bob Kuntz: count compiler.  One species, Barn Swallow, was recorded for the first time and we tallied all-time high counts for this count circle for 14 species.  High counts for these species are presented in Bold. Total count for individuals was the second highest ever recorded in a year. Total number of species was near the mean (123 species), though, over the last 17 years our annual count has averaged 128 species.
