Visitors: It was great to have a group of second graders from Kiptopeke Elementary School visit to learn about raptor and Monarch migration.
Weather: Strong winds were mainly from the northeast and east northeast, with overcast skies and temperatures in the seventies. There was a bit of drizzle in the early morning and late afternoon.
Raptor Observations: Slow, although the Merlin flight was decent.
Non-raptor Observations: Passerines were very quiet under these blustery conditions. One Great Egret flew by. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Brian Taber (<Taberzz...>) Kiptopeke Hawkwatch information may be found at: www.cvwo.org
