The weather was cold, but very little wind made it a very pleasant day, even with a few light snow showers in the afternoon. We had really nice looks at the birds we encountered during the day..highlights included 3 Snowy Owls, 5 Bald Eagles, Purple Sandpipers, Thick-billed Murres, a number of waterfowl, (1) Horned Lark at the boat ramp and a very out of place Eastern Meadowlark.
