Little Rock Christmas Bird Count 12/27/2008

I joined Dennis Braddy today to take a census of birds in the south central region of Little Rock. Our area ranged from Gillam Park in the east, Asher Avenue to the north, Mablevale Pike in the west and Arch Street Pike to the south. It was cloudy and gusty all day with intermittent rain and finally a downpour at 3:15. The highlights of the day were a Glaucous Gull at the BFI Landfill and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher at Fourche Bottoms both identified first by Dennis.
