Official Counter: Tom Pirro
Visitors: A few dozen day hikers.
Weather: NNE wind, 10MPH, with gusts to 15, subsiding to 5MPH later in the day; heavy cloud cover and hazy. Temps steady at 18C
Raptor Observations: Fairly steady with non-Broad-wings, BW's came in pulses, just when it looked the day day would bust open it would die, then when seemly dead it would pickup again....and so forth. Mid day birds had decent lift later modest kettles were low and allowing nice looks. NNE winds made for a "fast flight". Not many "local" TV's today, a RT had a nice dual with a raven. 2 Non-mirant BE's
Non-raptor Observations: Canada Goose, Blue Jays Raven (less than 10), Yellow-rumped and Blackpoll Warblers, American Pipit, and the usual crowd. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Tom Pirro (<tpirro2010...>) Mount Watatic information may be found at: http://massbird.org/EMHW/
