Waterbird Count – 3 November

Much windier day today, blowing out of the northwest. Most of the bird activity today was Red-breasted Mergansers again and some smaller groups of Buffleheads and Goldeneye. No reappearance from the Harlequin, though the waves were rough enough that it may have gone unnoticed if it was farther out from shore.
