2011 Indiana County Christmas Bird Count
Friday, January 6, 2012
The Todd Bird Club held its 29th Indiana Christmas Bird Count on December 26, 2011, with 63 people participating. The count tallied 9029 individuals of 71 species. There were more waterfowl species than usual, because of the ice-free water, resulting in the highest overall species count since 1997. The Indiana Count had record numbers of Green-winged Teals (4), Hooded Mergansers (34), Bald Eagles (3), and House Sparrows (809). The Jim Dearing award for best bird was given to John Taylor's group for spotting a Common Goldeneye at Yellow Creek State Park. View the detailed count results.
