NORTH PINELLAS CBC ALSO SCORES WITH 156
Saturday's North Pinellas Christmas Bird Count apparently finished with 156 species, the same as last weekend's St. Pete CBC, pending the final decision on a couple of rarities by count compiler Marianne Korosy.
A few species found that were of particular interest included a Gull-billed Tern at the north end of Honeymoon Island (photo forthcoming), a Lincoln's Sparrow at Possum Branch, two Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks in flight at the south end of Brooker Creek Preserve, two Magnificent Frigatebirds at Honeymoon, Brown-headed Nuthatch at Brooker and Black Scoters at Caladesi Island and Honeymoon.
One of the highlights for Dick Cissel's team at the north end of the Brooker Creek Preserve property was a Broad-winged Hawk (right) photographed by Randy Harrod a quarter mile away. The Wood Stork, below, was also photo'd by Harrod.
