Temp in the 50s, partly sunny, then mostly cloudy in the afternoon, some light rain in the afternoon, light to moderate S to SW wind.
The feeders are active with local birds, but still no vagrants. Over at the High School Willows, three Common Redpolls popped out and quickly flew away.
This brings our trip list to 56 — above average.
The question is — where did they go? They weren’t on Lake Ronnie, Clam Lagoon, or Shotgun Lake. It is a large flock — hard to miss.
Up at the Seawall, a lone scaup was hanging with the Harlequin Ducks.
And some Red-breasted Mergansers, which are usually really flighty up here, came close enough for a photo.
By the way, you can see how calm the water was today.
In clam Lagoon, the peninsula’s flock of Western Sandpipers had dwindled to five. As usual, a Songpiper was in the vicinity.
Hoping for something new tomorrow…
