Bird Counting Day

Posted in

On Saturday in the Story/Big Horn area the Christmas bird count will be taking place. I wonder if this Bohemian Waxwing will be included. Last year's Wyoming/Utah count of Bohemian Waxwings was down with only 12 counted on 3-counts in Utah and 1329 counted on 5-counts in Wyoming. For more see: http://birds.audubon.org/sites/d...

Last One of the Year (updated)

Posted in

The last Full Moon of 2012 gave the Sheridan area a brief glimpse as it rose at 4:30 pm Thursday and then disappeared. Perhaps if the cloud cover permits it will reappear later in the evening. The last full moon of 2012 actually occurs at 3:21 am (our time) Friday morning - when the moon is exactly opposite the sun but it will look full for a couple of days on either side of that time.
