Waterbird Count, October 23

Darrell Lawson covered for me on the 22nd so I suspect he will post a summary about that. Today brought a pretty good duck movement. Redheads, Long-tailed Ducks, and White-winged Scoters were the biggest movers, predictably. A good number of Bonaparte’s Gulls passed through, which I always enjoy. Some passerine highlights were 46 Snow Buntings flying down the beach and an early Common Redpoll perched in the feeder tree. I also had my first Rough-legged Hawks of the season migrate over.
