Northern Goshawk + Tomorrow and/or Saturday?
It's not likely to be epic - the well of birds is gradually running dry - but we've got two days and nights of forecast northwest winds ahead for Friday and Saturday. Another good weekend?
A walk about the state park in the rain turned up the continuing female Eurasian Wigeon amongst 190 (actual count) American Wigeon on Lighthouse Pond west, i.e. the part close to Lighthouse Ave. The molting male Eurasian Wigeon was on Lighthous Pond east, and a first cycle Bonaparte's Gull joined a large flock of gulls over Bunker Pond. The Tundra Swan was along Lighthouse Avenue, resting up in the marsh. Melissa had counted 0.0 raptors for the day as of 11:00 a.m., no surprise. Tomorrow is another day.
