Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Carol Sweeney, Kathleen Brockett, Kathy Bennett,
Nancy Kursewicz, Phil Brown

Visitors:
Thirty-five visitors today - thanks for your wonderful company and
conversation!



Weather:
Partly to mostly cloudy skies, and a light to moderate breeze, NW in the
morning, switching to WSW by mid-afternoon. Temps from the low 60's to the
mid 70's.

Raptor Observations:
A slower than expected day for migrants, but with decent diversity
especially if you include the non-migrants seen today (Red-tails, sharpie,
Cooper's, TV's). Most migrants were seen in the morning hours.

Non-raptor Observations:
A Dickcissel, a new bird for the Carter Hill species list according to our
records, was seen in the afternoon in the berry bushes. Other highlights:
Black-and-white, Magnolia, and Pine Warblers, Purple Finch, 8 Ruby-throated
Hummingbirds, 8 Monarchs, 4 Common Nighthawks. 39 species of birds were
seen or heard.

Predictions:
A similar weather pattern, but hopefully there will be a few more migrant
raptors than today. Come for the Dickcissel and then drop by the platform
to help spot a few raptors!
