I was able to make out in between rain and storms for a little bit today.
Much like everyone else's experiences I saw hundreds of robins and
blackbirds reverse migrating along the lakeshore and I had many Song
Sparrows. The lagoon between Lakeshore Drive and the zoo parking lot has
quite a few goldeneye and Red-breasted Mergansers, but there was one male
Bufflehead mixed in with them. A few FOS species for the zoo area today:
Fox Sparrow, Eastern Phoebe, Belted Kingfisher, and Field Sparrow.

Here is my total list for the day:

Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) 12 Flamingo Pond

Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) 130
