October 31, 2008

WEATHER: Another nice day at the point, with temps in the 50's, sunny skies, and a NW wind that slowly increased through out the day.

WATERFOWL: Despite seemingly good conditions, not much was moving today. Only 132 LT Ducks, 13 WW and 8 Black Scoters, 87 Bufflehead, 30 RN Grebes, and the first Harlequin Duck of the season.

OTHERBIRDS: In the 7th hour, we spotted a ANCIENT MURRELET in flight over the lake heading south. It was only seen in flight and we watched until it flew out of site, heading towards the Soo

Celebrating after the Murrelet flew by.

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

Good Birding,
