Total observation time: 4 hours

Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Crawford Lyons

Visitors:
Nineteen, including a friendly couple who have just returned to the Granite
State after many years in the Fredericksburg, VA area.


Weather:
Low clouds, increasing by noon, then a steady light rain by 1240. A light
east wind. Temps from the mid 40s to the low 50s.

Raptor Observations:
A welcome continuation of yesterday's nice late push of raptors, including
several excellent close looks at adult Red-shoulders and sharpies.

Non-raptor Observations:
Notable species include a close flyover group of eight Horned Larks, five
Eastern Bluebirds, a large flock of Common Grackles (about 250) settling
into the tree line on the east side of the orchard in the morning, and
small groups of Ring-billed and Herring gulls moving west.

Predictions:
Bands of rain, mostly in the afternoon. Given the flights of the past few
days I think it's more than likely some raptors will try to sneak by in the
morning!
