Waterbird Count, March 29

http://deniseadkins.com/?p=914 Compared to the hawk watch, my day was pretty slow. I did have a new arrival — a single Horned Grebe that flew in and landed in the Straits for a while. Good numbers of White-winged Scoters were moving. One highlight was a Merlin mercilessly diving at a Pine Siskin over the water, which managed to escaped.
