Waterbird Count, April 14

Three new species for the season and good numbers today as well. New additions were Northern Pintail, Green-winged Teal, and Lesser Scaup. I almost had another new species but couldn’t resolve a group of 16 Trumpeter/Tundra Swans that were just too far out on the water. Among non-waterbirds, new for the year was a Barn Swallow flying east along the beach.
