Today (31-Oct-2017) John Cassady and I birded the Indiana lakefront.
Although the wind was westerly we enjoyed a fine lakewatch with all three scoters, Long-tailed Duck, Black-legged Kittiwake, and Common Redpolls. Pals Magnitude of the flight was 17.24, which is currently the season’s fifth best flight.
