Waterbird Count – 1 October

Today was the slowest it’s been since the cold front came through on Tuesday – mild south winds throughout the day were keeping things in place. Some loon activity in the morning, including a couple of Red-throats. A few scoters and a handful of ducks (likely Redheads) were flying near the north end of the bridge early as well. A couple of large streams of Turkey Vultures came over in the early afternoon, along with some Sharp-shins and a couple eagles.
