Thirty-four observers covered the count circle which encompasses river bottom woodlands, pine woodland, agricultural areas and suburban subdivisions in southern Montgomery and northern Harris Counties. Although birding conditions on count day were sub-optimal (warm and windy), 88 species and one exotic were seen, comprising the second highest species total for the count. Total number of individual birds was comparable to 1982, another warm, windy day with an excellent wild food crop. Best species are Green-backed Heron followed closely by White-eyed Vireo and a pair of nesting Monk Parakeets. Eleven new species were seen for the count. Besides those above, these were: Greater White-fronted Goose, Northern Pintail, Blue-winged Teal, Gadwall, Ring-necked Duck, Cooper's Hawk, Lesser Yellowlegs and Rufous-sided Towhee. Species with unusually high numbers were Snow Goose, Northern Cardinal, Brown-headed Cowbird and Vesper Sparrow. Common Grackles were unusually scarce. Surprising misses were Red-cockaded Woodpecker and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher.
