A Feast Of Crows – And Good Diversity

This weekend I counted on both Saturday and Sunday mornings.  To say that Saturday was slow would be a monumental understatement.  Very few birds were counted throughout the day, although the diversity was not bad.  It was just that only one or two birds was typical for a species.  American Crows flew over from the Upper Peninsula in good numbers with 205 being counted, but that was about it.  Anyway, here are Saturday’s numbers.

Species East West
Double-crested Cormorant 0 2
Shorebird Sp. 0 1
Mallard 5 0
Horned Grebe 0 1
Common Loon 1 0
Common Goldeneye 1 1
American Wigeon 3 0
American Black Duck 0 1
Lesser Scaup 0 2
Greater Scaup 2 0
Long-tailed Duck 48 23
White-winged Scoter 0 9

Sunday’s numbers were quite a bit better.  There was quite a bit of species diversity, although the number were not high, they were much more respectable than on Saturday.  Here is the breakdown.
