Tweets – the thermometer said it was much warmer than in recent days – 31 degrees and up – but it felt cold, due to high humidity and a slight breeze. The clouds formed a beautifully rumpled blanket overhead, and that eventually led to a few drops of rain. Mostly, though, the weather wasn’t too, too bad. It mostly didn’t feel very birdy, though.

Highlights:

Gr. Wh.-fronted Goose 1 with ~650 Cackling Geese
- 8 species of duck -
Western Grebe Seen 13 of the last 14 weeks; unusually common
GREEN HERON One on near side of slough, just north of Dog Central
Barn Owl One near windmill, 6:15 a.m.
PEREGRINE FALCON One flew over Lot D around 11:30
Northern Shrike Nice adult, East Meadow today
Western Meadowlark A dozen between Compost Piles and model airplane field
PINE SISKIN About 30. First since early September!

For the day, we managed 58 species, though many of those were not seen by more than a couple of people.
