HOUSTON CBC - UNUSUAL YEAR by Richard Uzar So who thinks that folks who otherwise act rationally will come out on a cloudy, rainy, windy day to look for and count birds? Thanks to all fifty- six of you who did exactly that. A good time was had by all in spite of the weather. Though our backs were dampened from occasional "hunkering down" in the rain, our spirits were undaunted throughout the day. A lively countdown dinner was enjoyed at the Baytown Wyatt's Cafeteria Saturday evening, December 19th. Then we were ready to check the day's results. The count faired well despite the loss of sightings from Area 11. That's our bay 'and waterways spotters' area. Weather and water conditions prohibited the ships' leaving for the first time in many years, and their observations are certainly missed. Weather did not work against us all day, and those hearty 56 did turn up a total -of 164 species plus one additional race. The total number of individual birds, at 47,444, is lower than any Houston count report since 1956. Most noticeably absent were geese. Only one area sighted any at all, and then only 80 Snows. So are there fewer birds? Are we underestimating numbers? Or were the birds somewhere else, keeping dryer than we did? The most unusual bird, and a first for the Houston count, was a male Lark Bunting. Some birders aren't satisfied with simple observation and identification, and Dave Dauphin was in that category while capturing and banding this bird. He also does a worthy owl prowl each year. Thanks, Dave. Other notables were a White-winged Dove, another first for the Houston count, a Black-necked Stilt in La Porte, Greater Scaup and an Empidonax Flycatcher. Special thanks to Wanda and Charles Smith, Rene and Andrew Franks and Ed Rozenburg for accepting the responsibility for working up teams and leading groups in Areas 5, 7 and 8 this year. Thanks also to all those regulars who gave of their talents to make this a successful count.
