September 15, 2008

WEATHER: Partly sunny, with a 20+ mph NE wind at the start of the count, eventually faded to a light breeze by the last hour.

WATERFOWL: Very very quite, with only 80 RN Grebes going by.

SHOREBIRDS: 3 Baird's Sandpipers, 1 Am. Golden Plover, 10 Sanderlings.

OTHER BIRDS; Several flocks of Horned Larks, Am. Pipits, and Lapland Longspurs roamed around the point today, often feeding next to the shack. 2 Merlins, and the Peregrine Falcon poked around the tip most of the day as well.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for SW winds and sun.

Good Birding,
