Hi all,

It was another light - and frigid! - flight that passed over and through Sandy Point Beach, Cousin's Island, Yarmouth. However, unlike in each of my 5 visits since 10/8 (none over 104 birds) the count was actually a little better than I expected and featured good diversity for the date and a couple of goodies.

33F, mostly cloudy (brief snow shower), WNW 4.0 increasing to W 19.2.

118 American Robins
36 Yellow-rumped Warblers
26 Dark-eyed Juncos
10 Ruby-crowned Kinglets

7 Rusty Blackbirds
6 Palm Warblers
6 Purple Finches
5 Chipping Sparrows
5 White-throated Sparrows
3 White-crowned Sparrows
