Waterbird Count, September 26

A good amount of ducks and loons on the move today. It rained from around 8:00-9:00 and was overcast all day, which resulted in some missed identifications. Still, it was the best loon day of the season for both of the two species. From what I could ID of the many ducks, the majority were Redheads, with the highlight of a single Surf Scoter. Given the poor weather, I had very few raptors.
