Weather:
Winds started off light, becoming moderate to gusty and from the northeast
and east northeast. Skies were cloudy with temperatures in the seventies.

Raptor Observations:
Most birds were nice and low today, with strong movement in the late
morning and early afternoon. Small falcons, accipiters, and Ospreys
composed most of the flight.

Non-raptor Observations:
Passerines were pretty quiet today. A Northern Bobwhite called this morning
and an Eastern Ratsnake was slithering near the butterfly garden.
