October 6, 2008

WEATHER: Sunny and cool, with strong southeast winds.

WATERFOWL: Another slow day, with very low numbers. The highlight was 71 WW Scoters, 3 Surf Scoters.
SHOREBIRDS: 3 Am. Golden-Plovers, and 2 Sanderlings.

JAEGERS: A juvenile Parasitic Jaeger put on two appearances today. The first time it buzzed the shoreline, the second time it cut the tip and flew 50yds away from the waterbird shack!

OTHERBIRDS; 1 BB Woodpecker made a brief stop at the Merlin Pole in the second hour of the count, Lapland Longspurs, Horned Larks, and Am. Pipits continue to flock around the tip.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for southeast winds and sun.

Good Birding,
