August 21, 2008

WEATHER: Pretty much like yesterday, steady South winds throughout the day, low 70's, and lots of sun.

WATERFOWL: 1 Horned Grebe, 17 Red-necked Grebes, and 5 Common Loons where the only migrants.

SHOREBIRDS: The Piping Plover is still around, along with the Sanderlings, Semipalmated, Least and, Baird's Sandpiper's from yesterday.

RAPTORS: I had 7 species of raptors around the shack today; 6 Bald Eagles, 2 Sharp-shinned Hawks, 1 Broad-winged Hawk, 1 Merlin, 2 Am. Kestrels, 1 Northern Harrier, and 2 Northern Goshawks. It was a rough day to be a songbird.

Enjoy the sun,
