Final Christmas Bird Count for me today. Found 56 species at a few different parks in the area. I liked getting some up-close photos of the red-breasted nuthatch, and seeing a good variety of birds.

For the East Pasco Christmas Bird Count today, I was able to go to many places around St. Leo with the same skilled group of birders as the Hernando CBC on the 19th. I saw a total of 64 species, which is pretty good for one day of birding.

Lots of variety today with 59 species reported on Ebird. I think that is the most I have seen at Circle B in one day! Great Blue Herons are starting to nest, but babies haven't been born yet. Best bird of the day was a beautiful male painted bunting.

I got so many photos with flocks of birds, I decided to give them their own post. When all the spoonbills took off from a watering hole, it was my favorite photo of the day.
