We now stand at a preliminary 135 species on the count. We've added Common Eider, Red-necked Grebe, Long-eared Owl, Pine Warbler, Rusty Blackbird, and Eastern Meadowlark and subtracted Glaucous Gull, Winter Wren and Common Redpoll. Last I had heard from Greg we;re still waiting for a confirmed Swamp Sparrow. A Snowy Owl was seen at Milford Point on Friday, but not ebirded.
Here is an updated list of missing birds in case you had any of them since Friday or want to go looking today:
Here are some misses:
Pink-footed and Ross's Goose (maybe moved on)
Cackling Goose (still missing)
Harlequin Duck (I thought I saw one reported)
White-winged! and Black Scoter
Northern Bobwhite, not that it counts
Pacific Loon (one can hope)
(eared or western grebe would be nice)
Northern Fulmar Ha!
an early Osprey
Any other alcid besides Razorbill
Barn, Snowy, Short-eared, Northern Saw-Whet, Great Gray, Boreal, Northern Hawk Owls
Varied Thrush and Mountain Bluebird while I'm at it.
Any more warblers
Either of the buntings that have been around (not sure last date on either)
redpoll (not likely )
crossbills (not likely)

Your Legacy is Audubon's Future!
Bequests have been essential sources of support for Audubon since the beginning of our Society - Audubon was founded with a Legacy Gift!
Planned gifts of all sizes can have a profound impact on the vital work we do. They can also provide tax incentives like reducing estate income taxes.
