October 28, 2008

WEATHER: Cold and cloudy, with a steady north wind, and the first snow flakes of the season.

WATERFOWL: A good day for Black Scoters, with 16. But only 18 WW Scoters went south. The second hour was good for Bufflehead, with 101. But we only had 190 for the day.

SHOREBIRDS: 1 Greater Yellowlegs went past the tip today.

GULLS: The first Black-legged Kittiwake of the fall came by today, with a first winter bird in the 4th hour of the count.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for cloudy skies, snow showers and 20+ m.p.h. winds!

Good Birding,
