2001 Provo Christmas Bird Count Report
by Merrill Webb

The following is a complete list of the birds seen on the Provo Christmas Bird Count, December 15, 2001 plus the numbers of each. Some of the numbers for individual species may be different from what was given at the compilation due to additional feeder results received after the compilation. There were a total of 101 species seen which, I think, is highest in the state this year. We tied with St. George for high in the state last year with 108 species. * = first time on Provo CBC.

   There were 43 observers in 18 parties who totaled 124 hours and 531 miles traveled, combining on foot and by car. One group braved freezing temperatures in the early morning to go owling. Thanks to all who helped. The Provo CBC for year 2002 will be Saturday, December, 21, so please reserve a place on your calendar.
