There was nothing extraordinary out there today. The weather was extremely cold and uncomfortable, and it was a wonder that some great birders including Charlie Barnard, Dave Caller, Scott Kruitbosch, Dave Zawisha, and many others braved the elements to do the count. 

The trip out to Penfield Reef was the most brutal I have ever taken with the whipping wind. Highlights were: 450 Common Goldeneye, 35 Long-tailed Ducks, 1 Purple Sandpiper

Pine Creek had some nice birds.
Highlights were: 1 Red-shouldered Hawk, 1 Gray Catbird, 9 Red-winged Blackbirds, 1 Brown Thrasher, 1 Winter Wren, 1 Green-winged Teal, 2 Fox Sparrows, 14 Hooded Mergansers
