Avalon Seawatch, 28 October 2016

     The day dawned with nearly 10,000 birds flying southward over the ocean. Northern Gannets, Scoters, Red Throated Loons, and Double Crested Cormorants dominated todays count. The total for today's count came to 15,207 birds. Yesterday's count came to 18,913 birds (the second biggest day thus far!). Along with a record number of Northern Gannets (1,234) we sighted two Black Legged Kittiwake and a Bufflehead! Today's count also brought our season total up to 208 thousand birds!

     Thank you to all who have brought snacks and company to the seawatch! Join us on the beach, sunrise to sunset, at 8th and 9th Street.
