Observation start time: 13:30:00 Observation end time: 16:45:00 Total observation time: 3.25 hours
Official Counter: Lewis Grove
Weather: Fog and low clouds obscured the ridge until early afternoon; overcast conditions persisted and visibility remained low throughout the rest of the day. Light N winds and a high temperature of nearly 60F.
Raptor Observations: Not much moving on the subpar conditions.
Non-raptor Observations: First Red-breasted Mergansers of the year, 13 individuals in 3 groups, flying through clouds and into a light headwind. Also:
MODO - 3; AMGO - 6
Predictions: Relatively clear skies, particularly in the afternoon. Moderate north winds will limit the flight a bit I suspect. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Lewis Grove (<zugunlew...>) Tussey Mountain information may be found at: http://www.tusseymountainspringhawkwatch.org/
