8/12 migration

The woods weren't covered today, but it didn't seem like much was going on in them from the walks to the shack. Waterfowl were slow this morning, but there was a decent variety of shorebirds. This morning:

Common Loon-1
Red-necked Grebe-6
Great Blue Heron-1
Ruddy Turnstone-1
Semipalmated Sandpiper-2
Least Sandpiper-8
Caspian Tern-1
Tern Sp.-1

This evening Red-necked Grebes really moved again, as did the fog. Within 10 minutes the visibility went from 30 km to barely seeing just past the shack at around 9:00.

Red-necked Grebe-140
Waterbird Sp.-14
