My birding buddy Beth has been very busy of late. She did
three four Christmas bird counts for the Audubon Society, including one in Borrego Springs. These are major efforts and very time consuming.
I am not sure what birds she saw but she did send this nice picture of a desert bighorn ram that she encountered, always fun. Perhaps it was in Palm Canyon, I will have to ask her. They have been finding lots of long eared owls in Borrego Springs of late, wish I had time to go down there.
