August 26, 2008

WEATHER: A pleasent day at the point, very light South winds throughout the day, mid 70's, and lots of sun.

WATERFOWL: 139 Red-necked Grebes, 2 Horned Grebes, 10 Common Loons and 2 GW Teal, a little better then expected considering the winds.

SHOREBIRDS: More of the same, 1 Buff-breasted, 6 Baird's, Semipalmated, and Least Sandipipers, 1 Ruddy Turnstone, and 1 Lesser Yellowlegs.

OTHER BIRDS; The highlight of the day was a WESTERN KINGBIRD that spent about a hour flycatching at the tip this morning, we last saw it around 10:00 a.m. as it worked north along the beach. I also had Nashville, Palm, and YR Warblers, Eastern Wood-Pewee, and Chimney Swifts around the point today.

Good Birding,
