Waterbird Count – 8 November

Similar weather today to the last few days, but a bit more activity in terms of duck movement. It was mostly Mergansers and Goldeneye moving again, but the first Greater Scaup that I’ve had in a couple weeks flew by as well. My personal highlight for the day was watching two adult Bald Eagles tussle in mid-air as they passed through the straits, frequently doing complete somersaults in the air to bare their talons at each other.
