Bird counting

Bird counting in Houston

After a long day on May 28 of rain Cindy Verbeek confirmed that the bird watching workshop was a go at 6 p.m. starting at the Duck Pond. Before everyone met up there had already been 41 species of birds reported. It turns out that after a good rain it is quite ideal conditions for bird counting as that’s when all species come out to feed hey all gather in and start symphony of bird calls.
