The Bemidji CBC was held last Saturday, Dec 17th. Weather conditions  
were favorable for the 12 participants and we tallied 34 species with  
three additional species for count week. Judging from the numbers it  
would appear that the mild temperatures and lack of snow cover is  
having an impact on the "normal" movement of winter birds and late  
migrants. Highlights included a Varied Thrush, Evening Grosbeaks, N.  
Shrike, Magpie and Brown Creeper. High numbers of Junco and Canada  
Goose and the lack of Waxwings and Pine Siskins were noted. Three  
additional species were recorded for count week, Sharp-shinned Hawk,  
Northern Cardinal, and Hoary Redpoll. A big thanks to our faithful  
and trusty team of veteran counters and a warm welcome to our newest  
participants, Chuck and Danielle, and Valkyrie.
