more storm groundings of waterbirds inland

This morning’s (21 March) foul (or fowl?) weather grounded quite the collection of interesting waterbirds at inland bodies of water. In addition to the early and exceptional flock of 6 Sabine’s Gulls at Lake Murray as reported by Matt S., I hear that David T. had a flock of 10 Brant land at the Borrego Springs settling ponds, Brennan M. had 2 Surf Scoters at Santee Lakes, and Sweetwater biologist Pete Famolaro reports a single flock of 81 (EIGHTY-ONE) Surf Scoters on Sweetwater Reservoir (closed to the public Tues-Thurs).
