Highlights: Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Black-backed Woodpecker

There was a good thrush migration today, lots of Swainson's in particular. Unfortunately for this Swainson's (photo above) the gulls and Merlins also noticed this fact. Two Black-backed Woodpeckers were seen in flight just south of the Point. Other sightings in the woods today included Northern Goshawk, Winter Wren, Blackpoll Warbler and Clay-colored Sparrow. Today's main highlights occured at the waterbird count (check Cory's waterbird blog for details), including the Parasitic Jaeger and Sabine's Gull pictured below.
