Today's Tri-Cities CBC totaled a good 104 species despite a cold north wind
& temps mostly in the teens(F). No big misses.
The top 15 birds were (in order in my opinion):
Williamson's Sapsucker (male) (single person sighting, but good details.)
Western Bluebirds (4 including a couple males)
Purple Finch (male) photo
Red Crossbills (12) photo
Pacific Loon
Mew Gull
Saw-whet Owl
Greater Yellowlegs (6)
Yellow-headed Blackbird (male)
Bohemian Waxwing (only 1)
Fox Sparrow
Golden-crowned Sparrow
White-fronted Goose
Eurasian Wigeon (2)

Good Birding, (OK, I wanted winter & I got it!)
