Waterbird Count – 29 August

The weather started out cloudy and hazy this morning, and turned into rain by the end of the count. Yesterday’s geese and Red-eyed Vireos are still hanging around the count site today, and interestingly Red-necked Grebes were back in good numbers today after a few days of absence. A steady stream of monarchs came across the straits throughout much of the morning until the rain started, which surprised me given the cloudy cool weather.
