Waterbird Count, September 27

Although today was fraught with intermittent rain and frequent poor visibility, it was a pretty productive day. It was also the coldest day of the season, particularly due to the strong west wind. It was once again a great Redhead and loon day. Despite high waves, I saw a good number of Horned Grebes on the water, the highest so far this season. One highlight of the rainy conditions was 6 different rainbows over the Straits.
