Temps were abnormally warm again with highs in the low 50's. The sun broke out in the afternoon to make it feel much more like September than November.

Waterfowl: Another slow day. Red-necked Grebe (31) and Long-tailed Duck (27) were the most common species with lower numbers of Mallard, White-winged and Black Scoter, Bufflehead, Goldeneye, Common and Red-breasted Merganser, Common Loon, and Horned Grebe.
