My parents and I saw about 3500 Ring-necks in one pond and 1 Lesser
Scaup (female) in another of the Garysburg goose ponds (Cornwallis
Road north off US 258, northeast of Roanoke Rapids, NC).
Off Cape Henry (Virginia) at 4:30pm, just beyond breakers, off 85th
Street, in Virginia Beach a Clark's Grebe was diving and slowly moving
north. Unfortunately, Fort Story, to the north, is inaccessible as a
precaution against terrorists. Very obvious, very white "swan grebe".
Also, more than 100 each of N. Gannets and C. Loons flying north in
twenty minutes off the beach. There was also a nice crow roost at the
intersection of the Virginia Beach Expressway and I-64. Even though
these birds were seen in VA, I thought that they would be of interest.
Approximately 80 Bonaparte's Gulls also flew north, but none of the
target gull species (Little and Black-headed) were seen.
