Location: Sunset Point,Presque Isle State Park Date: October 7, 2019 Time:0715 to 0915 Weather: Cloudy, SW wind to 5 mph, temp. 55 F, waves less then a foot. Comments: A nice species diversity this morning. Most waterfowl were moving west. Landbirds were flying directly across the lake. One of the Winter Wrens was captured in the air by a Ring-billed Gull just before it reached land. Jennifer Ferrick assisted me during the final 45 minutes of the count.
