A beautiful day at the Point. There was a large flight of finches this morning. Hundreds of Purple Finches and Pine Siskins were coming in off the lake, and White-winged Crossbills were present again. Two Long-eared Owls came in off the lake, including the odd sighting of one in the afternoon. Tim had a good waterbird flight this morning, and also had the season's first Evening Grosbeak, and Common Redpolls. Other sightings today included; Ruffed Grouse, Rough-legged Hawk, Northern Goshawk, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Winter Wren, and Snow Bunting.
