Visitors from other areas produced the most exciting observations on the 13 Alabama Ornithological Society (AOS) Christmas Counts (“CBC’s”) conducted during the 1978 Christmas Season, the same number and same counts as in 1977. However, from a quantitative standpoint, many low species totals were reported. A number were doubtless due to the effect of the two preceding harsh winters; and others reflected the inconsistent weather, counts conducted in the last portion of the count period generally having many more low totals.
