Highlights: Hudsonian Godwit (photos above)
Black-backed Woodpecker
A Hudsonian Godwit landed on the tip for several minutes before rocketing back out over the lake to join a flock of southbound scaup. A Black-backed Woodpecker made an appearance on the Merlin pole. Diversity was down a bit in the woods today, but it was still fairly active. White-crowned and White-throated Sparrow numbers increased and a few Lincoln's Sparrows were present. Other sightings at the Point today included; , Red-necked and Horned Grebes, Redhead, Greater & Lesser Scaup, American Wigeon, Common Loon, Merlin, American Golden-Plover, Black-bellied Plover, Pectoral Sandpiper, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Horned Lark, and Lapland Longspur.
