Waterbird Count, August 31

An action packed morning produced the highest number of Red-necked Grebes I’ve had so far, with 240 birds. The grebes were almost entirely flying in and then landing on the water. I had a nice diversity of ducks, with the first American Wigeons of the season. Only other sighting of particular note was 6 Sanderling flying east.

American Wigeon – 3
Blue-winged Teal – 1
Redhead – 1
