Waterbird Count September 11th-13th.

Wednesday had the highest count of Common Loons for a day this season so far.  The winds have predominately been southerly lately though making for some slow days.  Today came from the northeast for a while, and I noticed a good number of vultures and eagles flying south over McGulpin Point.
