Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter: Craig Jackson

Observers:

Weather:
Warm (Boston temperature in 70's; I did not have a thermometer); Winds
strong (4) mostly from northwest; little cloud cover (for most of watch
majority of clouds were low in the southeast, until last hour and a half
when they were mostly high cirrus

Raptor Observations:
Minor movement of accipiters
4-5 resident Redtails

Non-raptor Observations:
Approximately 375 Canada Geese migrating and one Snow Goose among them
(about 10 skeins, the largest being about 100 birds)

Predictions:
Northwest winds should continue, so flight should be good for the next
three days at least
