Observations

  1. Number observed: 75
  2. Number observed: 1

    Details: Life bird, and a surprise. Not a male, sadly. With a Goldeneye, which was comparable in size. White patch on back of head, and whitish face, though viewing conditions were not ideal (glare). Only seen for a few moments through the scope... went to check Sibley to confirm and when I looked back in the scope it was gone.

    Due to viewing challenges and unfamiliarity this ID is not 100% given that I never had the opportunity for a double check, but I'm trusting my instincts which strongly suggested female/immature Harlequin when I first saw it. The size comparison doesn't hurt either.

  3. Number observed: 1
  4. Number observed: 1

    Details: Actually seen two days ago, but I refuse on principle to submit a separate checklist for a pigeon.

  5. Number observed: 20
  6. Number observed: 30
  7. Number observed: 12
  8. Number observed: 18

    Details: Highish number, to the point I found myself wondering if I was misidentifying White-rumped Sandpipers or Dunlin, but size comparisons to adjacent known species left no doubt. Plus yellowish legs when seen in good light and generally plump build.
