The annual bird count in the Amador Valley yielded an increase in raptor sightings. However, the total bird count was down, probably because of the weather.

Rich Cimino, Ohlone Audubon conservation chair who organized the count on Dec. 11, said that he had not tallied the total coiunt yet. However, from his own personal observation, it looked like birds wanted to stay put, because of the overcast sky. “When there is a low ceiling like that, birds tend to stay down. They don’t want to expend energy. Less activity lowers their body temperature, so they don’t burn off calories.”
