After a postponement because of fog the previous weekend, the Ludington Christmas Bird Count took place yesterday. I spent the morning riding around with Van Burmeister finding widely scattered groups of birds.

I decided to search an area northeast of Ludington where I had seen a Snowy Owl last Saturday Last week's owl was not to be found but a small group of Snow Buntings, 30 Robins, 33 Cedar Waxwings, a Rough-legged Hawk and a different Snowy Owl.
