Birds have definitely been on the move the past few days. Highlights have included 5 SANDHILL CRANES southbound over town yesterday, a single HORNED LARK the day prior, and a single LAPLAND LONGSPUR this morning that flew past the Pt Wilson Lighthouse. It headed down the beach toward town, though attempts to relocate it were unsuccessful.

Large numbers of RHINOS have largely ceased, though the first RED-NECKED and HORNED GREBES, and WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS have arrived.

Warblers and sparrows are on the move as well, with good numbers of YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS and SAVANNAH SPARROWS at the outer point. BARN SWALLOWS were completely absent today.

Good birding,
