Waterbird Count – 15 September

It was a goose sort of morning today at McGulpin. 372 came over between seven and ten, and one of the larger flocks had a Cackling Goose mixed in. I also had three other firsts for the season today, though they weren’t waterbirds. A couple of American Kestrels, a Northern Harrier, and a couple of Blackpoll Warblers all came over the straits, along with another small group of unidentified songbirds.
