Top wind gust was 18 mph early in the day but quickly settled in at less
then 10 mph. Good visibility all the way to the white mountains with some
haze but no clouds to be found. Temperatures were comfortable by mid
afternoon.

Raptor Observations:
Great diversity and nice to be over 100 birds again. 1st Goldn Eagle of the
season was a treat. We almost tied the record for most bald eagles in a day
with 14 counted

32 Monarchs

Predictions:
Still looks favorable, visit the summit and help make it a great day.
