Official Counter: David Brown

Observers: Carol Spease, Dirk Robinson, Joe Russell, Joe Sebastiani,
Kate Fleming, Kelley Nunn

Visitors:
9


Weather:
The day started mostly sunny and became mostly cloudy by the late
afternoon. A few sprinkles in the afternoon. Winds were from the north and
sometimes calm and sometimes moderate.

Raptor Observations:
Still no big push of migrants. Many excellent looks at local raptors
including 2 adult Bald Eagles that investigated a deer carcass that we put
out this morning.

Non-raptor Observations:
A common raven getting mobbed by crows.

Predictions:
Mostly sunny with moderate north winds. No one seems to be getting large
numbers of broad-wings yet but I would expect small numbers of a variety of
raptors.
