Visitors:
Quite a few. Nice couple from Tampa stayed a while. Good to have Rebecca
back.


Weather:
Cold winds early gave way to less cold less windy winds later. Winds 3 to
4 from WSW became variable as humidity decreased from 41 to 10% with
excellent visibility all day. Temp ranged from 7 to 11C with cloud cover
going from 15 to 0%.

Raptor Observations:
Birds high in the blue for the most part - even the ABE at 10:58 was hard
to find and track.

Non-raptor Observations:
A little more color, a lot more people. A great bug.

Predictions:
Spin the wheel.
