Lots of bird movement this past week in the south-central Piedmont.
Thousands of AMERICAN ROBINS as well as hundreds of CEDAR WAXWINGS,
RED-WINGED BLACKBIRDS, and YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS have been moving through
on their way south. Waterfowl numbers are also way up and still growing.
Cold and wet conditions usually bring the best birds to our large lakes,
and three great birds (and some other good birds) showed up at Sandy River
Reservoir yesterday and today during the unpleasant weather.


Wednesday, November 8:

- Sneaky LONG-TAILED DUCK in with raft of mixed ducks at base of dam.

- Flock of 25 TUNDRA SWANS flew over southern end of lake.

Thursday, November 9:

- 12 more TUNDRA SWANS in middle of lake.

- HORNED GREBE, FORSTER'S TERN, and several COMMON LOONS seen from western
side of lake.

- CLAY-COLORED SPARROW at bridge causeway may be first county and regional
record.

I'm sure more birds are on their way.
