Thursday, I went down to Long Point and did some good 'ole winter birding. I'm not super into winter listing, but its nice to see some late stuff in Decemeber.
First stop was at Townsend sewage lagoons. A fair bit of waterfowl, some Tundra Swan's, 3 American Pipits, some Lapland Longspur's and best of all a late White-rumped Sandpiper!
|White-rumped Sandpiper - Townsend December 1st|
|Ross's Geese - north of Lee Brown's, Long Point - December 1, 2011|
Also in the area were lots of Sandhill Crane's (~220), see below.
Didn't have too much after all the excitement with "Ross" but the day was overall really great, warm and sunny!
