November 1, 2008

WEATHER: A beautiful day at the point. With a cloudless sky, light east winds that had switched around to the NW by the end of the count, and temps in the 40's.

WATERFOWL: Not much. 5 WW and 2 Black Scoters, 5 LT Ducks, 25 Bufflehead, 43 Common Godleneye, and 78 RB Mergansers.

OTHERBIRDS: A Short-eared Owl came in off the lake in the first hour. A strange sighting was a RB Gull eating what appeared to be a female type Scarlet Tanager in the second hour.

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

Good Birding,
