CBC Camp Verde

Today – Jan. 02, 2012, six of us participated in the Audubon CBC in Camp Verde, AZ. In nearly eight hours we listed 50species for 1496 individual birds. These are photos of some of them.The day was warm and sunny and the entire area was rural/residential with the Verde River always within a half mile. Perhaps the most striking pattern to the day was the huge numbers of Canada Geese overhead. Ravens also were extremely common.

As always, click on the small image to view the larger version.
