Highlights included Common Loon, Piping Plover, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Bonaparte's Gulls, Eastern Phoebe, Osprey, Horned Grebes, Chipping Sparrow, Barred Owls (2 of them talking to each other), Tree Swallows (lots), Rough-legged Hawk, all 3 Merganser species, and 5 raptor species: Bald Eagle, Osprey, Rough-legged Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk and Cooper's Hawk.
