Tweets - it was gray and misty, but it was warm and it didn't rain, and the
fog was high enough that we were under it. It was windless, and the air had
that heavy, damp quality which makes road noise carry and birds to skulk.
There were long stretches where we only got glimpses of birds, without any
good looks. But it ended up being a pretty nice day.

Highlights:

Cackling Goose Outnumbered Canadas - maybe 250
COMMON LOON One WELL OUT on the lake
Norhern Harrier Matt had one early, East Meadow
Wilson's Snipe One bobbing below the weir, + 2 elsewhere
Barn Owl Matt had one early, East Meadow
SHORT-EARED OWL One flushed from East Meadow ~11 am
Hairy Woodpecker One burried deep in a willow, East Meadow
Western Meadowlark 5 or more at Compost Piles
PINE SISKIN Our first fall flock of 50+

Duck numbers are still way down. We had less than 10 Mallards, maybe 5
Bufflehead, and 4 Hooded Merganser, plus 1-2 probable Goldeneyes. That was
it for ducks.

For the day, 58 species
