I surveyed Swan Creek on Friday.

Passerine migrants were few, but the ones I found were notable: Red-breasted Nuthatch, Mourning Warbler, Cape May Warbler, and a probable Least Flycatcher.

Shorebird highlights included Black-bellied Plover (2), Stilt Sandpiper (1), White-rumped Sandpiper (1), and Short-billed Dowitcher (2).

Dabbling ducks were numerous. I counted 27 Blue-winged Teal, 42 Northern Shovelers, 628 Mallards, and 30 Green-winged Teal.

Other highlights: Virginia Rail and Common Raven.
