South but west adds spice

The onslaught of strong WSW, SW winds at 10 to 30 mph continues. Waterbird movement along the lake has been fair, with some good diversity: a few Parasitic Jaegers, Brant, Franklin’s Gulls, all three scoters, and a small number (better variety) of waterfowl. Winds do not look to shift to NW till Wednesday of this week, when a strong low pressure system looks to move south through the Great Lakes. Tomorrow and Tuesday should be interesting, with gulls and waterbirds moving along the lake in fair numbers (nothing red-letter yet till the late-week weather pans out). Chance for goodies such as Red Phalarope, Little Gull, Sabine’s Gull are fair since there is a strong western component to winds, but not absolutely ideal. Watch the incoming late week storm. It could be seriously good.
