Local birders participating in the 34th annual Midwiner Bird Count faced miserable conditions on Saturday, Dec. 15. Birders faced heavy rain and driving winds during the count, which limited visibility.

Heather Brown, Iris Brown, Joan Brown, Seth Brown, Todd Brown, Cheryl Houston, Omar Mandeel, Benton Young, Steven Young and I participated. We found 49 species and 2,550 birds. Birders spent 25 hours and covered 262 miles during the count. The count area is the same 15-mile diameter circle every year, which covers much of the west and central part of the county.
