Observation start time: 08:00:00 Observation end time: 15:00:00 Total observation time: 7 hours
Official Counter: David Brown
Observers: Carol Spease, Erica Miller, John Frink, Lauren Morgens, Sue McLaughlin
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. ======================================================================== Report submitted by David Brown (<davidebrownpa...>) Ashland Nature Center information may be found at: www.delnature.org
