Waterbird Count, April 9

The day started out quite cold in the mid-teens with strong winds, but by the end of the day it wasn’t too bad. Heat shimmer was quite extensive and resulted in some missed IDs of distant ducks. I had fewer Red-breasted Mergansers than average but otherwise it was business as usual for waterbirds. I also had the most Turkey Vultures of the season so far.

Redhead – 3
White-winged Scoter – 6
Long-tailed Duck – 474
Bufflehead – 1
Common Goldeneye – 3
Common Merganser – 12
Red-breasted Merganser – 54
Unidentified duck sp. – 63
Great Blue Heron – 1

Others:
Turkey Vulture – 73
Bald Eagle – 6
