The Carroll County Bird Club May Count was held on Saturday, May 9, 2015. What began as a cool morning with drizzle improved enough to allow sixteen observers in nine different parties to cover 29 miles on foot and 234 miles by car to record 5,488 individual birds making up 107 species. This number of species was quite a bit lower than the 127 we racked up last year.
However, some good birds were seen and heard. The top twenty species in terms of numbers are listed below. Write-ins included Purple Finch, Dark-eyed Junco, and a Cerulean Warbler that was heard by Tammy at Hashawha.
