Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Christmas Bird Count sponsored by National Audubon SocietyThe St. Johns River Water Management District is partnering with the National Audubon Society for its 117th Annual Christmas Bird Count. Several district properties will host birdwatchers during the nationwide event.“District properties play an important role in protecting our water resources, but also provide wildlife habitat,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “We are happy for an opportunity to collaborate with Audubon and birders in our area on this annual census in recognition of the value of these lands for bird habitat.”This nationwide wildlife census is organized by the National Audubon Society. Each count takes place in a 15-mile diameter circle where every bird sited is included in the count, giving an indication of the total number of birds in the circle that day.The district regularly partners with local chapters of Audubon Florida to benefit Florida’s natural resources. For the Christmas Bird Count, the district helps by providing access to land and, in some cases, providing staff to participate in the count. Multiple district properties will host count circles, including:Lake Apopka North Shore in Lake and Orange countiesMoses Creek Conservation Area in St. Johns CountyParts of Hal Scott Regional Preserve and Park in Orange CountyParts of Seminole Ranch Conservation Area in Seminole CountyParts of Canaveral Marshes Conservation Area in Brevard CountyData collection during the count provides not only an assessment of the long-term health and status of bird populations but also contributes to the district’s species list for each property.The nationwide, volunteer-driven event runs from Dec. 14 to Jan. 5.

The No. 2 USC women’s golf team has begun its 2016 season this week by competing at the ANNIKA Intercollegiate in Orlando, Florida, which began on Sunday and will wrap up Tuesday. Through 36 holes played at Reunion Resort on Sunday and Monday, USC is currently tied with No. 22 South Carolina for fourth place in the team standings at 12-under.The Women of Troy entered Monday’s second round tied for third place in the team standings, but ultimately fell to fourth after recording a team score of 3-under; they were passed by Georgia who finished with a round two team-score of 9-under on Monday.As an individual, redshirt senior Victoria Morgan was a team-best 3-under in Monday’s round two. Overall, Morgan is tied for 12th at the tournament with a score of 5-under through the first 36 holes.“I was just hitting the ball really well out there [Monday], I think I only missed like one green,” Morgan said. “My putting was kind of off, but I made things easier on myself because I was hitting the ball so straight.”Play at the ANNIKA was temporarily delayed on Tuesday due to disruptive weather conditions. Several players’ rounds were interrupted mid-hole and halted until conditions improved — this was the case for Morgan.“I had a six-foot birdie shot coming, and I marked my ball … but then the horns blew and I had to go inside before I could finish,” Morgan said regarding the delay. “I was stressing about that putt for like an hour-and-a-half, but I ended up making it; so it’s all good.”Also tied with Morgan for 12th place (-5) in the tournament standings is senior Tiffany Chan. After scoring 5-under in the opening round on Sunday, Chan finished with a round two score of par. Senior Gabriella Then is tied for 20th (-3), while sophomore Robyn Ree is tied for 34th (+1). After scoring one-over in both rounds one and two, senior Karen Chung is tied for 36th (+2) in the player standings.USC (-12), is 13 strokes behind tournament-leading UCLA (-25) in the team standings entering Tuesday’s final round of play.“Our goal was to win out here, and it still is,” Morgan said. “Our team has an incredible amount of talent; the five players that we have here are capable of shooting some really low numbers on any given day, so if we all bring our game [Tuesday] there’s no reason we can’t come back.”The team begins final round play Tuesday morning with South Carolina and Florida.
