Weather:
Completely overcast but with good visibility. Very little wind most of the

Celsius.

Some variety but few numbers. Five Cooper's hawks, a single, adult Bald
Eagle and a solitary Red-shouldered Hawk were the highlights. The only
Red-tail was a local bird.

Non-raptor Observations:
Crows were very active all day. Lots of robins and starlings on the grass,
as well as a few Killdeer plus the usual local woodland species singing.
