temps. reaching the mid 60s F.

Raptor Observations:
I watched the first hour with no birds, then the rain came. I went back
out when it began to clear at 1300 hrs. and had brief movement of birds
pushing through very high, then when heavy clouds moved back in the flight
shut down.

West wind won't be good with much cooler temperatures.
