Thirty thousand birds counted Saturday

Once again astounding numbers of birds were counted during the Uvalde part of the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count. On Saturday, 14 birders scoured parks and roadsides in a 15-mile radius. More than 30,000 birds, comprising 106 different species, were counted. Huge swirling flocks of assorted blackbirds challenged the birders’ counting abilities. These flocks likely included the 11,000 great-tailed grackles counted at their roost in the center of town the night before. Seemingly endless lines of sandhill cranes were easier to count as they dropped down into a field behind the Southwest Livestock Exchange to form a flock of 4,000 birds.
