Mid-40s, overcast with extremely low ceiling, rain starting in the afternoon, strong northeast winds.
No new birds. The godwits have left, the siskin is still here, and the number of terns is increasing daily.
At Lake Andrew, a pair of Common Loons in breeding plumage were not far offshore.
A male Snow Bunting has been coming into the Sandy Cove Bluffs feeder for the past few days. It will not allow close approach, but I got a so-so photo.
The phalarope migration has generally been late here this year. The Red-necked Phalaropes should be here in numbers, but only a few so far.
On a side note–Steve and Alan hiked down to Shagak Bay the other day and had a Bar-tailed Godwit and 3 Emperor Geese. They also took a boat trip out to see the Whiskered Auklets. They had thousands of them and some Parakeet Auklets.
We are hoping the changing weather (winds switching to the northwest and west over the next few days) may blow in some new migrants.
