Despite the challenging weather conditions, teams of birders saw more than 90 species yesterday, Saturday, December 17, during the annual Peekskill Christmas Bird Count. This 15-mile diameter circle includes birding areas from Peekskill south to Ossining and east to Cortlandt Manor, Millwood and Ossining.
SMRA Board Member Brian Kluepfel blogged about his experiences here. Yesterday was his first Christmas Bird Count!
