Waterbird Count, November 1

What better way to ring in November than  mid-60s and a winter gull.  Today a lovely adult Iceland Gull flew by McGulpin, granting me another four gull species day (with a lone Bonaparte’s Gull). In addition, I also had all 3 merganser species and all 3 scoter species — a good day for species combos. Overall there was nice waterbird variety.
