Weather:
Cool and windy with fine puffy clouds for great visibility.
After lunch slow down may have been the result of pop up showers north of
us in Pennsylvania.

Raptor Observations:
Only the two Accipiters flew down the east side of the ridge. All other
birds took the same line down the west side and quickly on the brisk wind.
Both Harriers were pale males.

Non-raptor Observations:
Ruby-throated Hummingbirds 4, Monarchs 3
