Date: October 28, 2019Time: 0735 to1005Weather: Clear, calm wind, one foot waves, temp. 46 FComments: A few west-bound Lesser Scaup with lighter movement of other waterfowl. Despite being a bit slow, there was a nice variety of birds. We watched a Merlin move across the lake from Canada and snatch a small Passerine just before making landfall. Jennifer Ferrick assisted with the count.
