Among the usual suspects, Janet Keating and I found the following less frequent raptors :

1 Merlin (Riviera Golf Course - Cabell Co.)
1 Light Morph Rough-legged Hawk (Ashton - Mason Co.)
1 Short-eared Owl (R.C. Byrd Locks - Mason Co.)

Also, there were several thousand ducks in the vicinity of Byrd Locks and just upstream. Mostly, they could not be seen very well from the WV side of the river. We did not find any waterfowl species that has not been reported recently at that location.
