Wigeon just off the beach. Oak Bluff Ave - Drake Pintail in a pool on airport property, continuing west on Oak Bluff - 2 Snowy Owls in the marsh when looking north. (Thanks Frank !) I turned left onto the causeway across the marsh and there was a hovering dark morph Rough-legged Hawk on the right, before the airport entrance. In the airport - 10 Horned Lark with one Chipping Sparrow.
