Weather:
Warm with very strong wind 15-42 mph. The wind direction varied from SW to
NW, with the strongest gusts out of the NW and WNW. Temperature reached
21.9 and the skies were mostly to completely cloudy.

Raptor Observations:
All the raptors were extremely high with the exception of the Northern
Harrier and the last Broad-winged Hawk. The only Eagle was very high. A
little before 1:00, a Golden Eagle was observed flying South. Shortly
thereafter a stream of Turkey Vultures, Black Vultures, Broadwings, and a
Sharp-shinned all flew north followed by what we assumed was the same
Golden. No markings were visible on the Eagle due to the extreme height.
Two local Red-tailed Hawks hunted in the valley earlier in the day.

Non-raptor Observations:
Turkey Vulture11, Tree Swallow 2, White-breasted Nuthatch 1, Flicker 1,
Crow 5, Raven 2, Dark-eyed Junco 6

Predictions:
Partly to mostly cloudy with moderate (9-15 mph) WSW wind. A high of 20 C
is expected. Thunderstorms expected after 5:00.
