Visitors:
Steady but modest stream thru the day. Thanks to Hugh and Dale for taking
on the vulture count and the other folks who helped out.


Weather:
Strong S and W winds.High temp of 72, low 61. Partly cloudy.Do not know why
count dwindled:ran out of birds, or the wind got to mid 20's or a long,
narrow, strong rain developed to the S of area and blocked birds.

Raptor Observations:
Nice Sharp-shinned and Broad-winged day.Broad-wings started in the 0700 EST
hour. Scattered flight day.

Non-raptor Observations:
American White Pelican flew into the bay and gave us good looks. 2 Sandhill
Cranes

Predictions:
Cooler by 20 degrees and WNW winds changing to NW. Probably on the slower
side.
