from Ray Belding, compiler

Under horrid conditions with wind gusting to 50 mph and frequent white outs due to heavy snow, as well, Litchfield Hills had it's lowest count total, 68, since 1987! Some of the hi-lites:
1 Fox Sparrow, 83 Snow Buntings, 10 sapsuckers, 2 Pine Siskins, 4 Lesser Scaup, 1 Coot, 1 Red-shouldered Hawk, and for Count Week - 1 N. Shrike, 1 Snow Goose and 1 Goshawk.

Most counters quit early due to the poor conditions.
