The Christmas Bird Count was conducted in Borrego Springs on Sunday, December 20, as part of a nationwide survey by the National Audubon Society.

Bob Theriault (see photo set), a retired state park ranger and currently Assistant Manager at Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center at the University of Irvine, organized about 50 birders who were assigned specific locations within the greater Borrego Springs region to report on bird sightings.

Wildlife reporter/photographer Ernie Cowan was kind enough to supply the Sun with three photos he took at the Roadrunner Club.
