WEATHER: Cloudy and cool, with a strong SE wind all day.

WATERFOWL: Things were better then yesterday, with 4 Mallards, 14 Greater Scaup, 1 Surf, 5 WW and 2 Black Scoters, 1 LT Duck, 4 Bufflehead, 1 Common and 136 RB Mergansers. 1 RT Loon, 2 Common Loons, and 5 RN Grebes also migrated south today.

SHOREBIRDS: A late Greater Yellowlegs flew over the shack in the second hour of the count.

OTHERBIRDS: A Northern Goshawk made a couple passes super close to the Shack today, at one point it was less then 20ft away!

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for cloudy skies, rain showers and 10-20 mph winds.

Good Birding,
