October 17 Morning Waterbird observations

Snow flakes were in the air at Mcgulpin Point this morning with a chilly 28 degrees. There was not much activity through the straits and I only counted till 9:45 am. The days highlight was watching the many snow squalls roll through. Results were 2 Common Loon, 21 Redheads, 125 Unidentified Ducks, 43 WW Scoters, 1 Horned Grebe, and 1 Red-necked Grebe. Other birds seen were 4 Bald Eagles, and 2 Lapland Longspurs. Submitted by Steve Baker
