November 8, 2008

WEATHER: Strong northwest winds, and snow flurries limited visibility. At times it was a complete whiteout.

WATERFOWL: There wasn't much to look happening today, despite seemingly good winds only a light duck flight. Highlights where; 95 LT Ducks, 2 WW and 3 Black Scoters, 6 Common and 37 RB Merganser, 3 Gadwall, 55 Common Goldeneye, and 3 Red-necked Grebes.

OTHERBIRDS: The third Snowy Owl of the fall was briefly present at the tip in the early afternoon, it was last seen flying south across the bay. A strange sight were 2 WW Crossbills feeding on the beach like Snow Buntings, in the mid morning.

The forecast for tomorrow is calling for more northwest winds and snow.

Good Birding,
