Conservation Corner - January 2017
To many people, conservation issues are best appreciated for their local significance. Changes in the abundance of birds can provide such meaning. Yolo Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count, centered on Putah Creek, provides forty-six consecutive years of records of bird numbers, which Steve Hampton has compiled onto a spreadsheet. This article will point to trends for several species from the Christmas Count results, and relate them to conservation issues.
