September 24, 2008

WEATHER: The day started off with strong South winds, which died off and shifted to a light West wind after a midday rain shower.

WATERFOWL: Slow until the winds shifted, then there was a light push of ducks, including; 71 Am. Wigeon, 47 Redhead, 55 Lesser Scaup, and 3 WW Scoters. Red-necked Grebe numbers continue to be extremely low, with only 5 going south today...

SHOREBIRDS: 1 HUDSONIAN GODWIT landed on the tip for a few minutes during the rain shower. Also present were 5 Am. Golden and 3 Black-bellied Plovers, 3 Pectoral Sandpipers, and 16 Sanderlings.

OTHER BIRDS: 1 Black-backed Woodpecker sat on the Merlin pole for few minutes this afternoon.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling calm winds and partly cloudy skies.

Good Birding,
