Umpqua Valley Audubon Society

Matt Hunter created an informative and entertaining report on this year’s CBC.

Both local and out-of-town birders put in an excellent effort this year for the Roseburg-Sutherlin CBC. Forecasts early in the week were for plenty of rain, but those gradually gave way to a beautiful and very pleasant mostly-cloudy day. Mark Hamm took the lead in coordinating teams this year and did a great job finding spots for everyone and incorporating a few new and/or returning folks. A big welcome to Brian Carlson, who recently moved to our area as a winemaker and joined us for this CBC! Many thanks to Paul Adamus who came down from Corvallis to experience our CBC for the first time. Paul was the project coordinator for the Oregon Breeding Bird Atlas conducted 1995-1999. Jeannie Pollock again honed her skills in deciphering handwriting to enter data from everyone’s tally sheets! It’s great to see all the cooperation and enthusiasm everyone brings to the CBC!

His full report can be found at Roseburg-Sutherlin Christmas Bird Count–December 18, 2021.

Thanks, Matt!
