Total observation time: 8 hours

Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Dave Howe, Dylan Jackson, Paul Bourgault

Visitors:
Incredible - six-hundred and two people visited the platform today. Thanks
everyone for dropping by, staying a while, asking questions, sharing
doughnuts, and enjoying a good laugh together (or two).


Weather:
Cool and cloudless became fair and cloudless. A light WNW to NW wind all
day. Temps from the upper 40s to the mid 60s.

Raptor Observations:
Low numbers but decent diversity.

Non-raptor Observations:
Most of the same songbirds from the last few days continued. Interesting
that there were no Geese or Cormorants seen flying today. Ten Ring-billed
Gulls headed WSW.

Predictions:
Light north winds and maybe a few more clouds than yesterday. Maybe the
lessening winds (and less westerly) will favor Carter Hill.
