Tweets - It was warm, a bit breezy, and cloudy this morning, and we had a
bit of mizzle & drizzle. Not bad weather, actually, and it was birdy for
the first half of the morning.

Highlights;
●Cackling Geese - a couple of thousand in flight predawn; 1000+ came back
and landed
●Virginia Rail - responded to clapping on boardwalk
●Green Heron - Matt spotted a skulker north of the Rowing Club dock
●Double-crested Cormorant -caught and swallowed a very large trout in slougj
●Common(?) Loon - one too far out to ID; probably Common
●Western Screech-Owl - Matt heard one early
●Northern Saw-Whet Owl - ditto
●Merlin - near weir. Male, and not a "Black". Probably "Taiga"

For the day, 55 or 56 species.

Last week we also had 55 species. My car was broken into during the walk,
and they grabbed only the totebag that had my raincoat, rain pants, fleece
vest, hip pouch, gloves, hats, etc, etc, etc. I had everything with resale
value with me, but I'm still out ocer $500 bucks. But in the aftermath,
writing a note to Tweeters fell by the wayside.
