As Tim mentioned there were thousands of birds at Fossil Point (between Empire & Charleston) this morning with at least 1,000 each of Bufflehead, Surf Scoter and Mew Gull. There were hundreds of Brant, hundreds of Greater Scaup, 40-50 Common Goldeneye and a few each of Black & White-winged Scoter. The KING EIDER was fairly close to shore, but difficult to track as it fed and dove amongst all the Surf Scoters.
At Sutton Lake I quickly found the BRAMBLING feeding in the driveway just north of 89301 Sutton Lake Drive
