Waterbird Count, March 24

Rough conditions today — 20-25 mph winds, heavy snow for most of the morning, and about a mile or less of visibility all day. Interestingly, most of the ducks were traveling east into the strong headwind. Overall, very few birds were moving, but I still managed two new species for the season: American Black Duck and Greater Scaup.

American Black Duck – 1
Redhead – 7
Greater Scaup – 2
Long-tailed Duck – 1
Common Goldeneye – 6
Common Merganser – 2
Red-breasted Merganser – 25
Unidentified duck sp. – 13
