Waterbird Count, October 11

Pleasant weather has returned — it got up to 73 F by the final hour with little to no wind and calm water. Unfortunately, tomorrow seems like rain. I had the best day of White-winged Scoters of the season thus far, but aside from that it was pretty average. Double-crested Cormorants finally seem to be petering out. A good number of Sharp-shinned Hawks passed by.
