October 29, 2008

WEATHER: Cool and partly sunny, with a strong (25+ mph) north wind, that slowly died throughout the count.

WATERFOWL: Good winds, low numbers. 623 Long-tailed Ducks, 1 Black Scoter, 22 WW Scoters, 50 Common Goldeneye, 4 Mallards, 50 RB Mergansers, and 21 RN Grebes.

OTHERBIRDS: just before the end of the count, Don Jennette spotted a Snowy Owl sitting at the tip! It was around the tip for a few minutes before moving down the bayshoreline. Check out the sightings blog for Chris's steller pictures of it.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for partly cloudy skies, and 20-30 m.p.h. south winds.

Good Birding,
