I did a pathetic amount of birding for this year's GBBC, but I did get seven new SWSA species, including fish crow and brown creeper. I ran Friday and Saturday and was refraining from posting because of the hope that I might run again today. Alas, that was not to be. The freezing rain scoffed at me and I dejectedly ran on the treadmill instead. That was a far cry from Friday, when the local area hit a record breaking 60 degrees! I was not the only one hitting the streets to run that day in shorts and a t-shirt. I saw 28 birds, which is my single run high for this year. However, Saturday brought the 40 mph winds and only 5 species of birds, none of which were new.
