This morning between 7:15 and 9:15 I counted 113 Loons migrating south over West Danby. All appeared to be following the line of the upper Cayuga Inlet Valley.
The Meade Period breakdown was:
Period 3 - 8 Loons
Period 4 - 7 Loons
Period 5 - 1 Loon
Period 6 - 10 Loons
Period 7 - 61 Loons
Period 8 - 6 Loons
Period 9 - 20 Loons
My count experience at the summit of Benjamin Hill last year, when every Loon seen was passing well to the east along the inlet valley, suggested that I should be able to count the same birds more easily from my own backyard, so that’s what I did this morning.
