Waterbird Count, March 28

An average day, duck-wise. The Long-tailed Ducks continue around St. Helena Island. A passing helicopter helped me count them by making many of them fly around briefly. Raptors kept things interesting with a Snowy Owl flying north low over the water around 8:30am and a good movement of Turkey Vultures later in the day, mostly in the last hour.
