Avalon Seawatch, 20 November 2016

It was a chilly, blustery, and sandy day at the Avalon Seawatch.  The day started out cold and clear with low winds, however as the day progressed both the wind and the cloud coverage increased.  Birds were scarce, which may have been attributed to the strong westerly winds that pushed birds farther out to sea.  The total number of birds seen for the day was 1,617 with double-crested cormorant, red-throated loon and Bonaparte's gull being the top three species observed.  Notable sightings include a horned grebe which flew by late in the day, and a single snow bunting, which has been hanging out for over a week!

Come visit us at the Avalon Seawatch, sunrise to sunset, located on the beach between 8th and 9th street.
