Barkhamsted CBC-one of the  “Northern” CT counts

Last minute call to change the date to Christmas Eve Day paid off. While still waiting for area results, prelims show 71 species without Sharp-shinned Hawk. Purple Finch and Ruffed Grouse seem to be harder and harder each year, not surprising both missed again.

Though birds and birding was though, some decent species were recorded. 

2 Common Loon, Greater Scaup, Great Black-backed Gull, 2 Peregrine Falcons, Merlin, Virginia Rail (New), American Pipits, Gray Catbird, Pine Warbler, Yellow-rumpled Warbler, Eastern Towhee and other quality saves.

A big thanks to all of those that were able to make the last minute change and participate again this year.
