This morning I had time for a brief outing so I headed back towards the Andree Clark Bird Refuge. If nothing else I was hoping to get better looks at the Blue-winged/Cinnamon Teal I saw there the other day. Well, I could not find those but in their place there were 5 Green-winged Teal, another species starting to arrive from their migration. Over the coming weeks I will be seeing more and more species returning from their summer vacations.
They were a ways away but you can definitely see from this photo how they got their name.
This morning I found no new species for the year but I did enjoy seeing a Peregrine Falcon make a few passes over the ducks and waders, causing the expected panic.
Some photos from today:

After today the year's total still stands at 240.
