La Crosse 2007 Christmas Bird Count - A Summary

Saturday, December 15, 2007 Pre-dawn until Dusk and Beyond There were 57 species (7,070 total birds) found on the count day this year. Unusual species included a Peregrine Falcon, a Carolina Wren and the first ever Townsend's Solitaire. The unusual pattern of American Robin numbers that began around 1991 pretty much continues with only 94 found this year. Odd numbered years have had few if any Robins while over 100 and sometimes three times that amount have been seen in the even numbered years. However, this was the most Robins found yet in an odd numbered year.Thanks to all of you who participated! Check our CBC page for final results Be sure to join us for next year's count.
