Waterbird Count, March 31

Despite rain and heavy fog for most of the day, I had three new arrivals — a Common Loon, three Red-necked Grebes, and a Great Blue Heron. I again had six unidentified swans, four flying south far to the west and two foraging off Pointe La Barbe. I also had amazing views of a male Northern Harrier flying along the shore very close to me.
