It was another gorgeous day but according to the weather forecast, this ridiculous string of weather may end at 3 weeks tomorrow.
Waterfowl: A relatively quiet day. The highlights were 14 Red-throated Loons, the first Wood Duck of fall, and the first Redheads (14) of the fall. Others included 36 Mallards, 36 Green-winged Teal, and a mixed bag of divers consisting of mainly Greater Scaup and Red-breasted Merganser.
Shorebirds: 8 American Golden Plovers and 6 Sanderlings were it.
Other: The highlight was a female Black-backed Woodpecker that spent a few minutes on the merlin pole.
