September 5, 2008

WEATHER: It was a cool, mostly cloudy day with a steady NE 10-15 mph wind.

WATERFOWL: Better then yesterday, but still slow, with 385 RN Grebes, 1 Northern Pintail, and 13 GW Teal.

SHOREBIRDS: The first Am. Golden Plover of the year showed up in the last minute of the count, other peeps around included 2 Baird's Sandpipers, 20 Sanderlings, and 3 Semipalmated Plovers. After the count was over Chris found a Buff-breasted Sandpiper at the tip.

JAEGERS: This evening, Nova spotted a juvenile intermediate morph Parasitic Jaeger working south past the point, the rest of us where able to have good looks at it in the evening light.

Tomorrows forecast is calling for showers and SE winds. After this its looking like a few days of NW winds!

Good Birding,
