A Great Start to November
November can be a slow month for waterbird migration here at the point. Luckily, this November has started off quickly with lots of good birds and a good flight. For the point, November is the time for big flights of Bufflehead and Common Goldeneye and also occasional flights of Long-tailed Ducks and Red-breasted Mergansers. Today (11/3) produced on the Bufflehead (1480) and Common Goldeneye (918) fronts. We’ve also had some highlight waterbird species thus far in November. These include Black-legged Kittiwake, Sabine’s Gull, Pacific Loon, and Purple Sandpiper. As always, for full numbers, check ebird. The counts continue through November 15.
