Hi Janet...late response

You can judge for yourself in terms of recent results:



In general cloudless, deep blue skies at this site are NOT conducive
to numbers regardless of the winds. Possibly the birds pass thru too
high to be seen.

8 Bald Eagles were seen on a quite cloudy day in late August.
