The BIV Birders tallied 35 different species this year in our little "city garden". Highlights were: Golden-crowned Kinglet, Nashville Warbler, Purple Finch, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Gray Catbird, Common Nighthawk, Chimney Swift, Brown Thrasher, and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. We enjoyed good company, snacks coffee and Hot Apple Cider and Pizza for Lunch. Many thanks again to our local River Bluffs Audubon members for participating with their enthusiasm and generously sharing their knowledge with other birders. Attendees also participated in "re-sighting" some of the over 200 birds in this garden which have been color-banded by the Missouri River Bird Observatory as a part of their "Winter Backyard Bird Banding project".
