Waterbird Count, September 15

Nice weather today, but unfortunately as it often happens, it was slow with waterbirds. I hardly saw a waterbird after the 4th hour, but there were a good amount of raptors migrating at least. I’ve been happy to see Red-throated Loons the past few days as I hardly got to see that species in the spring.
