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.
