Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Jen Frost

Visitors:
Ten, including Hoosiers and a Washintonian (i.e. a DC'er)


Weather:
Cool and cloudy, with a light variable to SE breeze, temps from 35 to 50F,
but it certainly felt chilly after all the recent mild weather.

Raptor Observations:
Just over a score of migrant raptors, mostly sharpies, but with a
smattering of Red-shoulders and a couple Harriers, a Coops and a Merlin.
There were several local Red-tails, TVs, and an adult Bald Eagle as well,
plus another Coops or two.

Non-raptor Observations:
Highlights include Common Loon - 1, BRANT - 28, Canada Goose - 35,
Shorebird Sp - 2, E. Bluebird - 2, Hermit Thrush - 1, Cedar Waxwing - 130.
Flocks of robins poured down the Contoocook valley at the end of the day -
close to a grand were counted between 4:30 and 5:00 pm.

Predictions:
A bit warmer, cloudy, with light south winds. If the air is not too heavy,
there might be some movement.
