3 of us, too, were in C area Sun and, indeed, had similar experiences...  
more or less so.....

Shelburne Bay - 1-2pm

Bald Eagle - still picking food off ice and flying E. to eat
Snow Goose - black wing tips seen when it flapped - but way across the bay 
from the boat access with many CAGO
Mallards - 100+ feeding in among ice chunks along shore
Blacks - 20+
Large flock of Ringbills
C. Mergs and rafts of Goldeneye

Charlotte Beach:
Common Loon 1
Horned Grebes - 20+  these guys just kept popping up!  What fun!
C. Mergs and rafts of Goldeneye

S. of Button Bay:
Turkey feeding in field - 100+
N. Shrike - 1  (target bird!)

Champlain Bridge - 4:30  Blackbacked Gulls on ice flow but none of those 
birds reported by Ted and Allen.   Were we in the same place????   Yes - but 
on the wrong side, at the wrong time - AND without the POWER of a Murin 
scope!!   Seeing through that is BELIEVING!

For the day add 4 Ravens, 1 Great Blue Heron (in Danby),  2-3 pair 
Bufflehead - 1 Grouse (Manchester) and Redtails 10+

So who enters this in ebird?  and how?  generally by area?  specifically by 
site? hourly by viewer?
