Mid-40s, overcast, very low ceiling, strong NW winds, occasional drizzle or shower.
More phalaropes showed up today in Phalarope Cove. Two Ruddy Turnstones were out on the Clam Lagoon Peninsula. An Arctic Loon was off the seawall.
Yesterday, Steve and Alan found a Wandering Tattler at the mouth of Sweeper Creek. We could not find it today. We went to a spot today where some Fish and Wildlife people reported a Common Snipe winnowing. Steve and Alan had tried this spot two nights ago and had just a Wilson’s Snipe. Today, we heard a snipe calling, but never saw it. However, the strong wind didn’t help.
No new trip birds. The siskin is still here (Note to Isaac–It showed up at the feeder at 5 pm!).
These blog entries will be getting shorter and shorter until something new happens or shows up.
Trip list is holding at 56.
