Temp in the 40s, overcast, moderate south wind, occasional drizzle.

Although the weather is changing, no new birds have blown in. The next few days of predicted strong southwest winds gives us hopes of new arrivals.

The only bird we added to the trip list today was Horned Puffin (which nests nearby, so it was expected).

The swan left overnight and migrant waterfowl is diminishing rapidly. Only a few Buffleheads remain, one Common Goldeneye, one Shoveler, and we could only find four Tufted Ducks today.

The Short-eared Owl keeps making appearances for the other birders on the island, but not for us.

Sorry, no pictures today.

59 and counting…
