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.
