August 25, 2008

WEATHER: A very bright sunny day, warm, with very light NW breezes.

WATERBIRDS: Despite the tail wind, only a trickle of birds moved through today. Diversity was good though, with eight species of ducks, including Gadwall, WW Scoter, Northern Pintail, Northern Shoveler, and the first Lesser Scaup of the season.

SHOREBIRDS: 2 Black-bellied Plovers where briefly at the tip at dawn. 1 Buff-breasted, 6 Baird's, Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers, and 2 Ruddy Turnstone where around at some point in the day.

Southwinds are forecasted for the next day or so...

Good Birding,
