A total of 22,641 individuals of 114 species (116 taxa) were tallied during the 70th annual Coot Bay (Everglades National Park) Christmas Bird Count on January 2. Compared with last year’s count, 29 more individuals but 7 less species were seen this year. The count’s nineteen participants tallied 109 species (111 taxa) on count day; five species not seen on count day were reported during count week. Only two unusual species were reported: Limpkin, reported for the 7th time and Sandhill Crane, only reported for the 2nd time. A new high count was reached only for Royal Tern. Warbler diversity was notably low this year, with only 12 species reported. For the second consecutive year, and for only the second year ever, no American Coots were reported within the circle.
