Waterbird Count 9/25-9/27

The 26th was the best of the last 3 days.  Highlights lately include the first Surf Scoter and Lincoln’s Sparrow of the season on the 25th, the highest duck count of the season so far on the 26th, and the first Horned Grebes of the season today.

968 ducks were counted on the 26th, however due to their distance plus the passing rain decreasing light and visibility, only 324 were i.d.’d to species.  Of those, 250 were Redhead.  Also of note was a Surf Scoter & 9 White-winged Scoters.

Total counts can be viewed on the following eBird lists from the 25th26th, & 27th.
