Wendy Park/Whiskey Island jackpot

Ridiculous looks and numbers of Iceland Gulls from the old coast guard station at Wendy Park/Whiskey Island this afternoon. Waterfowl were just lusting to be photographed with hundreds of point-blank flybys of mergs, Redhead, scaup, and Cans throwing themselves at us. And the fastest Ruddy Duck and Horned Grebe on earth, bulleting past. Victor Fazio IIIand Chuck Slusarczyk Jr were just throwing their cameras everywhere. The fattest Pomarine Jaeger in the Great Lakes continues its goal of gluttony with lazy 30-foot-overhead-passovers. Just stunning birding. A few White-winged Scoters present. Diversity and numbers spectacular. The perfect mix of open water and ice. Absolutely crippling looks at everything. photos by J Brumfield
