Montrose Point, August 12, 2017

We had a warm, sunny day at Montrose Point. Beautiful conditions.  We arrived at a non-peak time, we usually do. Very many starlings, House Sparrows, and female R-W Blackbirds were out. We did see one male, possibly young, R-W Blackbird as well. On the way in we saw four Double-crested Cormorants on a street lamp by the harbor.
