Langley/White Rock Audubon Christmas Bird Count


Sunday Dec 28 2014. Overcast 5c
On Sunday I took part in the Langley/White Rock Christmas bird count. There were many experienced birders taking part and much to learn. It was the fourth or fifth time I have been on the count and as usual it was more about a fun day with friends than a photo expedition. I snapped a few shots at the Langley Memorial Hospital bird feeders.
American Goldfinch (Carduelis tristis)

Bushtit (Psaltriparus minimus)



Here are the results. Thanks for organizer Kathy Masse and others for all the hard work.
