Highlights: White-winged Crossbill, &
Rough-legged Hawk

The season's first Rough-legged Hawks and American Tree Sparrow arrived yesterday. The first White-winged Crossbills since early in the season were also seen yesterday. The weather pattern today brought migration to a virtual standstill. However, there were still a few birds to be found. Sightings today included; Dunlin, Rough-legged Hawk, Merlin, Lincoln's Sparrow, and Lapland Longspur
