Observation start time: 09:00:00
Observation end time: 15:00:00
Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Judd Nathan, Tom McShane

Visitors:
Seventeen, including several friends of the observatory who helped make for
a fun day!


Weather:
Cool, but sunny to start, with clouding making for a colder feeling day in
the afternoon. Increasing SE winds seemed to axe the flight.

Raptor Observations:
A dozen migrants of five species. Two Bald Eagles (an adult and a
young-of-the-year) did not migrate. An adult Red-tailed Hawk posed in
perfect lighting on a close orchard post - unfortunately all photographers
had left.

Non-raptor Observations:
Thirty-one Ring-billed Gulls, a Northern Flicker, Hairy and Downy
Woodpeckers, 37 Am. Crows, several Blue Jays, a Chickadee, 17 Am. Robins,
four E. Bluebirds, four Starlings, 10 Juncos, two Purple Finch, 10 Am.
Goldfinch, and a few House Sparrows.

Predictions:
Cold - highs will be just below freezing - with ripping winds out of the
northwest. Will they bring a large raptor of the northern climes?? If you
come, please dress for the weather!
