Observation start time: 08:00:00 Observation end time: 16:00:00 Total observation time: 8 hours
Official Counter: Ken Klapper
Observers: Amanda Kallenbach, Robert Vallieres
Visitors: One-hundred and three, including a foundational member of the Condor Recovery Project, several NH Audubon alumni, and the draftsman for the Amoskeag Fishways building!
Weather: Pleasant, from the upper 60s to the upper 70's, with a few cumulus and veil type clouds to spot against, and a 5-10 mph WNW to W breeze.
Raptor Observations: A few more birds, but less diversity than yesterday. Turkey Vultures moved in double digits today. At one point four adult Bald Eagles circled to the south, perhaps two of the local pairs counting coup.
Non-raptor Observations: Clay-colored Sparrow was seen in the morning along with several Lincoln's and White-crowned Sparrows. A single Pine Siskin flew overhead, calling. Monarchs - 13, Canada Geese - 297.
Predictions: Similar weather pattern. Let's see if it brings similar results. Rare sparrow and Bald Eagle fans are encouraged to visit. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Ken Klapper (<kklapper...>) Carter Hill Observatory information may be found at: www.nhaudubon.org
