Waterbird Count, September 19

Today brought a nice variety, including two first-of-the-season birds — Northern Shoveler and Red-breasted Merganser. As with yesterday, there were many distant, unidentifiable duck flocks headed east today. I had a nice Common Loon flight, tying my season record from 9/12 of 46 birds. Very little raptor migration today, I only had Kestrels actually cross the Straits.
