It was a miserable day with steady moderate rain and 20-25mph East winds.
Waterfowl: Did not want to fly in this weather. The only brave migrants were 4 Red-necked Grebes and a single White-winged Scoter and American Wigeon.
Gulls/Terns: A gorgeous juvenile Bonaparte's Gull stopped by for a little bit in the morning.
Shorebirds: The highlight of the day was a Buff-breasted Sandpiper which showed up during the 4th hour. It associated with peeps and lingered for the rest of the count. 2-3 American Golden Plovers also stopped by as well as 7 Semipalmated Plovers and a handful of other peeps.
Other: A dozen Cliff Swallows came in off the lake during the last hour.
My hopes are high for tomorrow as the rain clears out and the winds shift to the north!
