Christmas Bird Count 2014

Dec 14, 2013 | Birding

Today was the 114th annual Christmas Bird Count.  St. Paul Audubon Society has been actively participating for decades and this was my 4th or 5th year.  After a cold morning exploring our ‘circle’ of parks and open spaces in St. Paul, I decided to add in a bird count from our backyard feeders.  Scanning the feeders, I didn’t find any of the usual suspects.  It is rare that we don’t have any birds in the backyard. 

In closer inspection, I found this Cooper’s Hawk finishing off a dove.  This explains why all of the other birds left the area.
