      Despite a cold, overcast day, almost totally frozen lakes and only 14 intrepid observers, the Delta CBC managed to spot 72 species.  The golden crowned sparrow was back for a 3rd year at Dave Galinat's home.  Other interesting sightings included sandhill cranes, prairie falcon, 3 Say's phoebes each of whom was seen by a different team, white-throated sparrow and yellow-headed blackbird.  A complete list is below.
