Waterbird Count – 20 September

It was a very foggy day today, and that combined with the warm, still weather made for a slow day, but species diversity is still pretty good compared to last week. A Blue-winged Teal and a Redhead flew by together shortly after dawn, and a handful of Redheads later in the day and the usual merganser activity were the extent of the duck activity for the day. Red-necked and Horned Grebes were loafing on the lake throughout the foggy morning, and the weather didn’t seem to deter raptor movement, with a Peregrine and a good number of Sharp-shins passing over as well.
