September 9, 2008

WEATHER: The day started off with sun, a rainstorm, and SW winds. Then changed to sun and NE winds, followed by a short burst of sleet. Things stayed cool and cloudy until the afternoon when things cleared up and the wind shifted to the west and the temperature hit the upper 60's.

WATERFOWL: A slow day, but we did get the first Surf Scoter of the fall, and a RT Loon.

SHOREBIRDS: 1 Am. Golden Plover, 3 Baird's, 2 Least, 1 Buff-breasted, and 1 Semipalmated Sandpiper, were the highlights.

OTHER BIRDS: The first Lapland Longspur of the fall was on the beach today, along with the Merlin, and a Peregrine Falcon.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for sun, and southeast winds.
Good Birding,
