Howdy,

What started out as a misty, sprinkling day, turned into a great day for birding! The mist cleared around 10 a.m. Jeff and I began at 7:05 a.m. by looking over waterfowl and searching muddy flats for shorebirds.

Highlights included (but not limited to):
3 Trumpeter Swans and 3 Tundra Swans in Pool 17 still
1 Merlin
8 American Golden Plovers
1 Orange-crowned Warbler
7 Tree Swallows
1 calling flyover Purple Martin
1 adult dark morph Red-tailed Hawk
53 Canvasbacks
225 Long-billed Dowitchers
and really nice looks at a few different male Wood Ducks!

83 species for the visit today. If interested, full report can be viewed here:

Good Birding!
