October 16- afternoon sightings from McGulpin Point

I was able to observe from 3 to 3:50 at McGulpin Point with strong north winds, snow squalls, some sunshine, and the huge waves of gale warning proportions. 2 Common Loons, 32 WW Scoters, and 36 UFD(Unidentified Flying Duck).
Beach birds were 3 Pipits and a single Rusty Blackbird.
It was a day for contrarians as 12 Bald Eagles , 80 Crows, and a single Pileated Woodpecker all proceeded to head north towards the UP directly into the bluster. One Eagle circled a panicked merganser briefly before flying north giving great views in brilliant sunshine. Submitted by Steve Baker
