Waterbird Count, September 8

Light rain and heavy fog for the first couple hours gave the impression it would be another slow day. Thankfully, once it cleared there was a bit of movement. Nothing of particular note, but did have 4 Sanderlings flying west and 2 Sandhill Cranes flying south.

The forecast doesn’t seem great for Saturday’s field trip to McGulpin, but I’m hoping for the best.
