August 22, 2008

WEATHER: Cloudy, with rain off and on for most of the count, and a steady south wind.

WATERFOWL:1 Red-necked Grebe, 1 Common Goldeneye, 3 Common Loons where the only migrants.

SHOREBIRDS: The highlight for today was a Buff-breasted Sandpiper seen around the tip early in the count. The Piping Plover from the past couple days was still around, and spent most of the day on the south side of the tip. Numbers have grown slightly for the rest of the peeps, with 11 Least, and 4 Baird's Sandpipers now at the tip.

Winds are forcasted to shift around tomorrow and end the day out of the Northwest. If that actually happens, then tomorrow afternoon, and Sunday could be really good.
