Location: Sunset Point,Presque Isle State ParkDate: October 19,2019Time: 0725 to 0955Weather: Clear, calm wind and calm lake, temp. 39 to 45 FComments: Light waterfowl movement many from the west. A fair number of cormorants were crossing the lake from Canada. Jennifer and I saw a grebe that was under water more than above the water well offshore that we never really saw well, though I believe it was probably a Red-necked Grebe. It was interesting to see three scoters flying past together representing all three species. Jennifer Ferrick and Roger Donn assisted with the count.
