Waterbird Count, November 2

With little to no wind, there was not much movement today. There were still some decent things to be seen, including, once again, all 3 mergansers, all 3 scoters, and 4 species of gulls. All morning a large group of American Goldfinches were flying around, at least 60 that I saw at once. Among them were 1 Pine Siskin and 1 Common Redpoll. The ducks east of the bridge, presumed 99% Redheads, lifted off the water and split off southward and westward, interestingly. I managed a poor photo of them.
