Subject: Lake Crabtree birds today
I stopped by the lake twice today, once in the morning in the park, and
once in the evening from the Southport access. Not sure if the gusty winds
had anything to do with it but there was a nice variety and large number of
birds (this evening especially) including:

Ruddy Ducks
Green-winged Teals
Ring-Necked Ducks
Scaups
Buffleheads
4 Redheads
2 Horned Grebes (and lots of Pied-billed Grebes)
~20 Red-breasted Mergansers
3-4 Common Merganser (females)
An estimated 900 Ring-billed Gulls in one long raft, including:
5 immature Herring Gulls and
1 Lesser Black-backed Gull that stood out like a sore thumb
