Observation start time: 07:00:00 Observation end time: 17:00:00 Total observation time: 10 hours
Official Counter: Anna Stunkel
Observers: Bob Ake, Bob Anderson, Thuy Tran
Weather: Light winds were mostly from the northeast and east northeast, with cloudy skies and temperatures in the seventies.
Raptor Observations: We had good falcon movement today, and a boost in accipiter numbers as well. Most birds were zipping by low and close, which made for a fun day.
Non-raptor Observations: The highlight of the day was a Wood Stork, which flew over the platform rather low at 2:18 pm EST. Great looks were had by all. The bird came from the north northwest and was heading south southeast. Photographic evidence will be posted on eBird. A Wilson's Snipe flew over, and a Rose-breasted Grosbeak was seen this morning. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Brian Taber (<Taberzz...>) Kiptopeke Hawkwatch information may be found at: www.cvwo.org
