First Day at Graham Point

Graham Point is quite different from McGulpin point. The sun shines directly for most of the day, which at this time of year is a little much but I am sure I will appreciate its warmth once it starts to get cold. It also seems to have more bird activity despite being more developed. I was also welcomed in the morning by Steve Baker with kind offerings of delicious wild cranberry and walnut muffins. Both count locations have an amazing view of the bridge and of the straits, I am very fortunate that the view is so pleasant.

The only migrant of the day was a single goldeye that rested on the water not too far away for a brief moment. There was also a close flyby of two peeps but were unable to be identified, likely least or semipalmated sandpipers.
