Official Counter: Lewis Grove
Observers: Bob Fredrick, Jason Beale, Joe Verica, Nick Bolgiano
Visitors: Jason Beale and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) Golden Eagle class visited today. They were treated to a really superb view of a Golden Eagle close to the ridge and were generally excited to see migrating hawks.
Weather: Overcast with moderate SE winds and a high around 42F. Early afternoon rain cut the count short.
Raptor Observations: A good push of birds moving ahead of the rain.
GOEA: 0909 Unk, 0947 Sub, 1129 Unk, 1151 Sub
BAEA: 0912 Ad, 1139 Ad
Non-raptor Observations: We have had small groups of Golden-crowned Kinglets present at the watch over the past week or so, presumably migrants on their way north. Other birds seemingly migrating:
COGR - 7; EUST; 1; TRES; CANG; COLO - 3
Predictions: Looks like a washout; rain and fog predicted for most of the day. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Lewis Grove (<zugunlew...>) Tussey Mountain information may be found at: http://www.tusseymountainspringhawkwatch.org/
