Non-raptor Observations:
Adult Bald Eagle headed East over the North lookout flying through the
bowl, over the airfield then east again (not counted)

The first bird of the day was a juvenile Golden Eagle who landed in the
bowl where vultures normally roost, then quickly flew over the hump and
proceeded West, very low, a nice look!

The Goshawk flew low over the North look-out from the west headed East over
the bowl. Approaching number three on the ridge, it thankfully turned a
couple of times and headed South.

Four Ravens

Partly cloudy with a high of 46 degree with morning ENE winds at 1-3, later
turning NE 1-2 mph.
