Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Betsy Chadwick, Mike Bourgault, Paul Bourgault

Visitors:
Ten. Thanks to those that spent some time at the observatory today - it
certainly helped take my mind off the pain from the cold!


Weather:
Partially cloudy, cold (low 30s dropping to the high 20s) and NW winds,
20-30mph, gusting to over 40mph. Wind chills bottomed out in the
mid-teens. A brief flurry shower reminded us that winter is on the way.

Raptor Observations:
Not much - a few Red-tails and small accipiters were brave enough to
attempt some southbound migration. A few local Red-tails kited and hovered
in various corners of the sky, and a local adult Bald Eagle occasionally
peeked out of the valleys and then quickly drew back down.

Non-raptor Observations:
Canada Geese - 148; RB Gull - 3; Am. Robin - 5; Eastern Bluebird, and a few
of the common corvids.

Predictions:
A smidge warmer with more moderate NW winds. There is some serious
potential for late season migration!
