Waterbird Count, October 21

A bit of a slow day for waterbirds, aside from some very distant flocks of unidentifiable ducks in the dense heat shimmer. It was a bit cold, but thankfully the forecast for the remainder of the count doesn’t seem like it will get much colder. There was a very nice movement of Red-tailed Hawks and American Crows, easily my best day for the latter.
