October 1, 2008

WEATHER: Cloudy and cool, with strong north winds. It seemed like a good day for migration.

WATERFOWL: considering the excellent winds, it was surprisingly slow. With only a 7 species of Ducks seen, including 58 WW Scoters and 3 Black Scoters. 4 RT Loons, and 13 RN Grebes also went south today.

SHOREBIRDS: The end of the shorebird season, with only 12 Sanderlings present today.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for more north winds and showers.

Good Birding,
