September 26, 2009

It was another very nice day with temps close to 70 and a breeze out of the SE.

Waterfowl: A pretty slow day overall but a few species were moving in decent numbers. It was another decent day for White-winged Scoters with 57 and a decent day for Greater Scaup with 73. Red-breasted and Common Mergansers were seen in OK numbers and loons put in a modest showing with 39 Commons and 6 Red-throateds. Grebes seen today were 41 Red-neckeds and 4 Horneds.

Shorebirds: Very slow. 4 Golden Plovers and 14 Sanderling.

Other: Nothing of note besides a Peregrine Falcon that made a few close passes in the afternoon.
