Official Counter: Katrina Fenton

Observers: Cynthia Nichols, Jami Bascom, Judd Nathan, Nancy Moreau

Visitors:
15


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.
