the count plus one

The day after the Xmas count was uneventful except for a few Snow Geese.Very likely quiet because everyone was too exhausted!

Mike Yuan tweeted the report of the SNOW GEESE. Three were seen inside the ballfields enclosed section of Western Long Meadow. They were not count week birds because 24 were seen yesterday on count day.

One of my party birders yesterday notified me that yesterday's Northern Saw-whet owl is today's absentee. It was not seen in that spot.It might be roosting in a different tree; or it simply moved on.In any case,we really lucked in as a count day bird.
