Weather: Clear blue skies and an unrelenting, very chilling 10 to 15 mph WNW wind all day. Temperatures ranged from 47 to 58 F.(8.3 to 14.4 C.).
Raptor Observations: No raptors at all in the firs 1.5 hours, but then a punctuated stream of small numbers of TVs and Broad-wings each hour. Two adult Bald Eagles and one immature were nice as well as a couple of N. Harriers, but very few accipiters.
Non-raptor Observations: Nothing unusual today.
Predictions: A little warmer with E to ENE 6 to 8 mph winds in the morning slowly shifting to NNW and NW through mid afternoon. Terrible wind directions for our location but at least they will be relatively light compared to the last couple of days. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Michael Zebehazy (<zebs...>)
