Official Counter: Jerry McWilliams

Observers: Jerry McWilliams

Visitors:
none


Weather:
Clear with light WNW wind and a temp. at 40 F.

Raptor Observations:
Single TVs and small groups moving past well to the south of the watch as
expected with a northerly component. Not much 9n the way of raptors. I
had to leave the watch early because of a scheduled commitment.

Non-raptor Observations:
Double-crested Cormorant--9, Bonaparte's Gull--70, American Crow--25

Predictions:
If the pipeline didn't empty out south of the watch today, conditions for
tomorrow are setting up for a good flight.
