Miami CBC Results

A total of 14,266 individuals of 122 species (123 taxa: 113 countable, 10 non-countable) were tallied by 29 participants during the 51st annual Miami-Dade Christmas Bird Count on December 19, 2020. No new birds were added to the checklist this year and only two unusual birds were tallied: Barn Owl, seen during count week, and a Nashville Warbler, seen on count day. New high counts were obtained for Egyptian Goose, Blue-winged Teal, Indian Peafowl, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Orange-winged Parrot and Cape May Warbler. Eleven parrot species and eighteen warbler species were seen during the count. Remarkably, the exact same number of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers were seen in 2019 and 2020!

Too bad the wind was so strong, I may have been able to add a couple more species offshore. Hopefully next year!
