Tweets – there was a bit of a chill breeze, but nothing much in the way of
fog, and the clouds even moved off to bring us blue skies and sunshine. Yet
the birds were scarce and quiet.

Highlights, such as they were:

Cackling Goose Many large flocks overhead, but none landed
Green-winged Teal In slough, and in Rowing Club pond
Greater Scaup Female in slough - First Of Year (FOY)
Horned Grebe I saw 4 on lake, late - FOY
Bald Eagle Many sightings, 4-6 birds
Pileated Woodpecker Seen distantly twice, heard more
Merlin Grace & Ollie had one around 8:00

As has been the case in recent weeks, no real passerine highlights. We're
happy to actually see the birds we hear, and to hear the birds we expect.
Only finches were a few HOUSE FINCH. Only 5 species of sparrow (SPOTTED
TOWHEE, FOX (heard only for most people), SONG, and GOLDEN-CROWNED, and
DARK-EYED JUNCO.

For the day, just 49 species.
