August 20, 2008

WEATHER: Today was another nice day, with highs in the mid 70's, sunny and a steady 10mph wind out of the south.

WATERBIRDS: Despite the south winds 52 Red-necked Grebes flew south today, along with the first Blue-winged Teal, and Bufflehead of the season.

SHOREBIRDS: A relatively good day for shorebirds, with 6 Sanderling, 3 Baird's, 20 Semipalmated, 1 Least, 2 Semipalmated, and 1 Piping Plover working the south side of the tip. And 3 flyby Solitary Sandpipers

It seemed like a decent day for non-waterbirds too, with 2 Sharp-shinned Hawks, 1 Am. Kestrel, and 8 Broad-winged Hawks, 4 Cliff, and 1 Bank Swallow, and 3 Nashville Warblers.

Hopefully we can get some Northwinds soon,
