I spent a couple hours in the fog this morning. There was a soggy, imm. (presumably male) Peregrine Falcon teed up in the big ("Flicker") tree and a similar later Peregrine flying north from the beach out of the Park. That was it.
Migrants consisted of about 65 Cedar Waxwings and 8 Am Goldfinch. That was it.
In the Park were 110+ Brant (several dark intermediate birds including imm plumages with all-black necks and, at least one that definitely resembled "Gray Brant" plumage), 4 RT Loon, 1 Com Loon (calling incessantly for 10 minutes off the beach!), 12 LT Duck, 16 Am Wigeon (eating sea lettuce in Morris Creek), 2 Purple Finch, 1 G Catbird, 2 E Towhee, 7 Flicker, 50 Am Robin, 25 WT Sparrow, 4 RC Kinglet, 10 Am Goldfinch, 2 Car Wren.
