None


Weather:
Cloudy and cool in the morning. As the morning progressed the clouds were
lower.

Morning was good but mid-day the visibility was poor with the birds flying
high and back-lit. The flight shut down around 1:30 when the rain/snow
began.

Non-raptor Observations:
Movements of blackbirds all day. One Sandhill Crane see kettling with a TV.

Predictions:
Rain most of tomorrow so likely no flight.
