Seawatch - December 3-9, 2018

Unlike last week, this week was much more consistent with west and northwesterly winds all week and 2-4 thousand birds.  Here're the totals for the week:

December 3: 4904
December 4: 3204
December 5: 2102
December 6: 2690
December 7: 2221
December 8: 3477
December 9: 2372

Tom Reed had very diverse days on the 3rd and 4th, highlighted by a Ross's Goose, Canvasback and Redheads, a Common Merganser, 3 Razorbills, 2 King Eiders, a Harlequin Duck, a Red-necked Grebe, and even a late Least Sandpiper and an American Woodcock coming in off the ocean.

Wednesday the 5th was relatively slow but brought a Humpback Whale and another Harlequin duck.  The 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th all brought 100+ Long-tailed Ducks each day.  The 8th had another small push of scoters, with 1000+ Black Scoters and 300+ Surf Scoter.

There are some east winds in the forecast, so make sure to keep track of what shows up at the Seawatch!
