Short stops at the beach parking lot have been productive the last 2 days at the lake. Yesterday- Dunlin 40 single flock Bonapartes Gull 20 Short eared Owl 3 soaring out over lake.
Today- Red Crossbill 15-20 in pine stand between parking lots. I identified 2 birds in a landed position as Reds and assume the rest were not WWCR. As a remark. From what I saw in the 15 minutes I sat in my truck at this site, today was likely a good day for longshore migrants including finches.
