It was another gorgeous day for weather just like every day for the past two weeks. Early clouds quickly vanished and winds were light out of the south and east.
Waterfowl: Another slow day. The highlight was 43 White-winged Scoters, the most yet this fall. It was another decent day for Common Loons with 58 and other divers included 44 Red-necked Grebes and 22 Red-breasted Mergansers. The only dabblers of the day were 7 Green-winged Teal.
Gulls/Terns: 2 Caspian Terns (an adult and a juvenile) that migrated over were a bit of a surprise since they haven't been seen since August.
Shorebirds: Another poor day with the only birds present being 10 Sanderling, 6 American Golden Plovers, and a flyover Black-bellied Plover.
Other: Nothing noteworthy. Numbers of Pipits, Horned Larks, and Lapland Longspurs continue to rise.
