Roaring Fork CBC
Here are the results for the Roaring Fork Christmas count held on Saturday, December 15th. Vic Zerbi found our premier bird in Glenwood Springs, a male WESTERN TANAGER! “Birds of Western Colorado” shows no records after November 15th and Andrews & Righter show one December record in Boulder (1960). There may be more current data for eastern Colorado . Thanks to Linda Vidal who hosted a great post-count party at her home.
