Lakewood Circle - 2019 Christmas Bird Count - Preliminary Results
By Nancy Howell, Compiler for the Lakewood Circle, Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society
With publication deadlines for the Feathered Flyer newsletter looming, the Christmas Bird Count information presented here is preliminary. Totals of species have not been included as results are still coming in. A final compilation will be on the Western Cuyahoga Audubon website by mid January. Please mark your calendars for the 2020 Christmas Bird Count which will be held on Sunday, December 27, 2020.
The Lakewood Circle Christmas Bird Count, Saturday, December 29, 2019, had good weather and, above all, great participants. A huge thank you to everyone who walked, drove or watched feeders and covered the Lakewood Circle well. Spring-like weather, before, during, and a couple of days after the count, had birds scattered far and wide. Count day temperature varied from 36 degrees in the morning to 46 in the afternoon with partly to mostly sunny skies. All water sources were completely open again keeping waterfowl and gulls scattered. One noticeable item was that many fruiting trees and shrubs, that at times attract additional species, had already been stripped of fruit.
The number of species seen during the count was good, as the list below attests. As always, some nice surprises rounded out the sightings. The list includes 73 species from count day and 4 from count week. Species in bold are rare or unusual sightings at this time of the year, while those in bold and italicized are count week (cw) species, noted 3 days before or 3 days after the count day, but not seen on the count day itself.
Once again, THANK YOU, participants. Your dedication is truly appreciated.
