Weather: Moderate to light winds were mainly from the northeast, with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures were in the low thirties to low forties.
Raptor Observations: We had a nice red-tail, red-shoulder, and Bald Eagle flight today. Again, some northward drifting was going on, but a good number of birds were heading south. Three Golden Eagles passed this morning (two juveniles and one either juvenile or subadult). Two of these birds were flying together and passed right over the platform, relatively high.
Non-raptor Observations: Hundreds of Turkey Vultures were moving, mostly in the morning. The robin, blackbird, and Tree Swallow flight was a bit quieter compared to yesterday. Other observations included:
