Waterbird Count – 10 October

Today was sunny with moderate north winds, and cooler than yesterday. Despite the north winds, there was less duck activity than the past few days, with only a few hundred Redheads moving. A good number of loons flew east this morning, and a large stream of Turkey Vultures came over, but it was a reasonably quiet day aside from that.
