Mild temperatures kept things slow for most of the month with no large flights after the 8th. Despite that there were several highlights for the rest of the month including 89 Snow Geese, 6 Ross's Geese, 4 Harlequin Ducks, King Eider (second Tiscornia record), 22 Franklin's Gulls, Little Gull, Black-legged Kittiwake, and Snowy Owl!
All told the season total for 2016 was 56,861. Well below the previous low of 62,627 set in 2013. Noticeable this season was the lack of RB Merganser (5,000 less then the previous low), BW Teal (2000 below the previous low), Common Tern (1,400 below the previous low), Green-winged Teal (3,640 is a new season high count), Bonaparte's Gull (4,502 is a new season high count), and Ruddy Duck (279 is a new season high count).
