Comments:  Couldn’t image it getting any slower, but itdid today. For waterbirds, just three Canada Geese and a bunch ofcormorants.  The two Merlins crossing thelake from Canada were carrying food.  Asingle woodpecker crossing the lake from Canada, was pursued by a HerringGull.  Judging by the woodpeckers size,it was likely a sapsucker.
