Two hours in easterly winds at Battery Godfrey turned up only a few birds
of unusual interest. There were onesies of Gadwall, Greater Scaup, and
Bufflehead mixed in with Surf Scoter flocks, 8 Bonaparte's Gulls in a tight
flock, 2 northbound Tree Swallows, American Pipit, Savannah Sparrow, and a
non-local Red Crossbill. The female Gadwall was on the water, and was
associating with scoters so closely that she was swamped twice by incoming
waves. This is the third time in recent weeks that I've seen what I
suspect to be the same individual Gadwall, always with a scoter flock.

At Ft Scott, a Red-breasted Sapsucker was in the pines west of the ball
field, and a White-throated Sparrow was on the field with fellow
