October 7, 2008

WEATHER: Sunny and cool, with strong southeast winds.

WATERFOWL:Painfully slow. With only 12 WW Scoters, 10 LT Ducks, 17 RB Mergansers, 1 Common Loon, and 1 RN Grebe.

SHOREBIRDS:1 Am. Golden-Plover, and 4 Sanderlings.

JAEGERS, GULLS: The juvenile Parasitic Jaeger came by the point again today. Each time it put on a exciting show, harassing the gulls and stealing food from them. The 1st winter GBB Gull was present again today.

OTHERBIRDS; The first 3 Rough-legged Hawks of the season showed up today.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for showers and southwinds.

Good Birding,
