August 24, 2008

WEATHER: Partly cloudy, cool, and steady NW winds 15-20 m.p.h.

WATERBIRDS: Due to the winds out of the NW, Red-necked Grebes made a good push today, with 1,508 heading south, along with 7 WW Scoters, and a handful of Teal.

SHOREBIRDS: Not much around the point at the start of the day. But by the last hour, 2 Buff-breasted, 10 Baird's, Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers, and 1 Ruddy Turnstone had appeared at the tip.

The NW winds are supposed to continue through tomorrow, which will hopefully keep things moving!

Good Birding,
