Weather:
Overcast to partly sunny. It took a while for the thermals to build and was
late morning by the time even vultures were getting up.

Raptor Observations:
Overall a slow day. A kestrel went after the owl right at 9am but few
raptors in the morning. We had close looks at a broad-winged hawk and a
sharp-shinned hawk.

Non-raptor Observations:
Common nighthawk, hundreds of chimney swifts

Predictions:
Partly cloudy with a chance of showers and light southerly winds.
