Checklist Comments

There were perhaps twenty other birders at the sanctuary today, many of which we were birding with, but this checklist is only for the birds that Matt and I saw. We covered the 20 acres of the sanctuary proper plus the beach repeatedly, plus assisting with the banding operation when needed. Very cold and windy in the morning (perhaps 20 mph northwest wind and ~45 degrees), it warmed up somewhat over the course of the day, but the wind didn't die down at all until mid afternoon, and even then it was still around 10 mph. Many shorebirds and swallows flying north over the sanctuary early on, but this movement died down. There were low numbers, but decent diversity of land birds around the reserve early on, which were augmented by some arrivals over the course of the day.
