Observation start time: 09:30:00 Observation end time: 16:00:00 Total observation time: 6.5 hours
Official Counter: Katrina Fenton
Observers: Cynthia Nichols, Jami Bascom, Judd Nathan, Nancy Moreau
Weather: Low clouds in the morning took their time lifting, teasing with glimpses of blue sky above and green below through a curtain of gray that refused to fully clear until an hour before noon. There was a steady wind out of the west, and temperatures reached to within a couple degrees of 70 by the end of the day.
Raptor Observations: A spurt of Broad-winged Hawks in early afternoon seemed to bode well, the leader circling closely around Gina as it passed. However, the day continued to be quiet with the occasional migrant wafting through and the resident raptors showing themselves to chase the ravens.
Non-raptor Observations: One Tree Swallow and one Monarch Butterfly were the only non-raptors seen migrating. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Katrina Fenton (<gosknits...>) Pack Monadnock Raptor Migration Observatory information may be found at: www.nhaudubon.org
