WEATHER: It seemed like today would be a really good day for migration, with northwest winds gusting up to 30 mph. However the birds thought otherwise.

WATERFOWL: Better then the past few days, but still much less then Id hoped for. 353 Red-necked Grebes, 18 Common Loons, 1 RT Loon, 21 GW Teal, 11 BW Teal, and 1 Am. Wigeon.

SHOREBIRDS: 11 Sanderlings, 5 Baird's Sandpipers, 2 Semipalmated Plovers.

OTHER BIRDS: The day started off on a bum note, with a Merlin eating a Sora at the tip. Later in the count a young Osprey came flying in off the lake.

WEATHER; Northwest winds continue in the 10-15 mph range for tomorrow, hopefully some birds will come with it.

Good Birding,
