On Oct. 29, 2015 Ed Pike and Steve Baker counted waterbirds. Waterbird movement was very slow with light southwesterly winds, cloudy skies and drizzle. Waterbirds seen were:
Mallard 4 C. Goldeneye 7 C. Merganser 27 C. Loon 6 Horned Grebe 5 Long-tailed Duck 38 White-winged Scoter 2 Red-breasted Merganser 1 Duck sp. 3 also seen flying south across the Straits were: C. Crow 69 One adult Bald Eagle was seen flying north across the straits (maybe confused). After conducting the count we traveled north across the bridge and saw the Redheads by the north end on the east side; many were near the bridge with a string of them extending to the east for a half mile or more. We estimated 3,500 in the flock.
