I drove through Rock Cut this afternoon before it closes for the annual deer hunt this weekend. Highlights were 3 Common Loons, 18 Ring-necked Ducks, 7 buffleheads, 3 Hooded Mergansers, 2 Pied-billed Grebes and 17 Bonaparte’s Gulls. I did not look in the north bay, by the campground boat launch. I suspect that there might have been more birds there because it is in the lee of the wind. I just didn’t have time to drive in to the campground.
Remember that the park is closed, beginning tomorrow, 11/13, for the annual disabled person deer hunt. I believe that the park will reopen on Sunday, 11/16. Can anyone confirm that?
