Waterbird Count, August 29

Quite a slow day, but I had the season’s first Bonaparte’s Gulls fly by. I forgot to mention in the last post that I am also keeping track of migrant Monarch butterflies (and any other butterflies, though I’ve only had a couple sulphur sp.). I have had some nearly, if not every, day of the count so far. Although waterbirds were slow, I did have my best Monarch movement thus far, with 12 butterflies flying south over the Straits.

Mallard – 1
Redhead – 1
Common Loon – 5
Red-necked Grebe – 15
Double-crested Cormorant – 104
Great Blue Heron – 2
Great Egret – 1
Bonaparte’s Gull – 3

Turkey Vulture – 10
Bald Eagle – 1

Monarch – 12
