Waterbird Count, April 23

Pretty average day, with strong wings from the northeast. The largest flock of Redheads I’ve had yet (around 210) flew in from the west and landed around Pointe La Barbe early in the day. Still good numbers of White-winged Scoters around.

Around 6:00 this morning there was an Eastern Towhee singing outside of our bathroom window.
