WEATHER: Sunny, warm, and 20+ mph South winds.

WATERFOWL: Another slow day, with a decent variety, but low numbers. The highlight was 5 Surf Scoters that flew down the shoreline, and landed close off the tip for a few minutes.

SHOREBIRDS: In the afternoon Chris found a STILT SANDPIPER in flight with the Sanderling flock. Eventually after the flock disappeared for a half hour, the STILT SANDPIPER set down in the phalarope pool for a few minutes. The other nice thing today was a flock of 22 Am. Golden-Plovers that buzzed the point in the afternoon.

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

Good Birding,
