September 4, 2008

WEATHER: Cloudy, cool, with a ENE wind that was around 20 mph at dawn, but faded to 5mph or less by the last hour.

WATERFOWL: Another light day, with only 24 RN Grebes. But we did have the first Greater Scaup of the season, and 2 WW Scoters.

SHOREBIRDS: Good numbers around the tip today. 9 Baird's, 1 Buff-breasted, 2 Least Sandpipers, 1 Lesser Yellowlegs, 3 Semi-palmated Plovers, and 22 Sanderlings.

OTHER BIRDS: The first Pipits of the fall showed up today at the tip.

WEATHER; Rain through at least tomorrow morning, with NNW winds will hopefully get some birds moving south.

Good Birding,
