No Avocet, first Snow Buntings

No sign of the Avocet this morning at the Bracebridge Ponds. I checked around all four cells and even the dumping ponds. There was a sludge/effluent moving operation right by the middle intersection, truck traffic was heavy, and water levels were up in both cells 2 and 1.

There were four Snow Buntings at the gravel area north of cell 4, the first ones I've seen this fall. There were five Gadwalls, about 180 Bufflehead, four Ring-necked Ducks, and a Pied-billed Grebe in cell 4. The American Coot was still in cell 1. Twenty-eight Dunlin flew in from the north as the rain changed to sleet, graupel, snow, whatever. They briefly touched down at the north shore of cell 3, but then circled around for a while, eventually flying out of sight to the southwest.
