Waterbird Count, October 14

Much less hectic than yesterday’s flight, but still a lot of ducks passing through. I had even more White-winged Scoters today and 3 distant shorebirds which seemed to be Dunlin but were a bit too far to call. A decent handful of raptors passed over, but the primarily westerly wind pushed many of them far from me.
