Cool winds blow
Following a cold front yesterday afternoon that brought strong winds, hail and a double rainbow the weather today had a very fall feel to it. The temperatures never made it much above 50 and the wind stayed strong all day long. After several days of not getting much birding in I made a stop in the afternoon at Winsor Dam to see if any waterfowl was out on the reservoir. Despite the winds and heavy chop I found a couple Gadwalls with a group of a dozen Black Ducks. I also had a couple adult Bald Eagles including one that made a low pass by me and then fought the wind to move back north.
