Subject: Erie County waterbird count for November 1, 2020
Location: Sunset Point, Presque Isle State Park

Weather: Cloudy, Lightto moderate rain showers, south becoming SW to 15 mph, waves 2 to 3 feet. Temp. 53 to 48 F

Comments:  Not much movement, but some premium birdsmade up for the lack of waterfowl abundance. An adult Little Gull spotted by Bob Scribner, fed for a while justoffshore, a Purple Sandpiper buzzed by and landed on the breakwater, then aRed-necked Grebe flew west past the watch. Julie Leonard, Roger Donn, Bob Scribner, and Jennifer Ferrick assistedwith the count.
