Not quite the variety that Hector reported on Sun, but lots of birds, none-the-less. And we didn't even attempt to find a Cackling Goose. We saw 2 immature Bald Eagles, but were told there is an adult in the area too.
The huge flock of Cedar Waxwings greeted us at the parking area. What we did not realize until the end of our scoping is that the flocks of birds could be well seen by driving south from the N parking area along the 'bay' area on the road/path. Area to E of rd and others still skimmed with ice.
Surely, all undercounted. But good to see the number of Black Ducks. Mallard count way down.
