Here are the results from the 32nd Annual Pueblo Reservoir CBC, held on Saturday, December 16, 2006, compiled by the compiler Mark Yaeger at his art gallery this evening, with over 20 people present for the annual potluck compilation party.  Please note some of these totals may not be the official final totals, though most totals should be the final totals. 
It was a very successful count in part to the 25+ birders out in the field covering the entire circle extremely well.  Many local birders were able to help out, as well as many out of town birders, some from Colorado Springs and the Denver area.  Also, a plus was the weather, fairly calm winds all day, and 50 degrees being the high, so not too cold or warm, and it there were mixed clouds and sun which was very nice.  This year some very dedicated owlers were out owling at 3:30 AM to sunrise and after the compilation party to 11:00 PM and produced an addition three species of owls that were not seen during the day.  Thanks again to everyone who made this year’s count so successful.  Huge thanks to Mark Yaeger, for organizing a great Christmas Bird Count each year and the compilation dinner/party afterwards; which many of us look forward to each year.
