Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Andre Moraes, Mark Suomala

Visitors:
Twenty-seven.


Weather:
Winter weather to start - temps in the low twenties and NW wind in the
teens, which made it feel like temps in the low teens. Partly to hardly
cloudy all day, with winds and temps moderating a bit.

Raptor Observations:
Lower than expected... Red-tails predominated. A juvenile Bald Eagle seems
to have taken up residence in the area - it gradually flew further and
further north this afternoon.

Non-raptor Observations:
Eighteen SANDHILL CRANES flew southwest along the Contoocook River valley
at 9:15am. Also seen or heard today were 85 Canada Geese, 31 Mallards, 5
Black Ducks, 13 Common Mergansers, a Hairy Woodpecker, the three usual
corvid species, a Titmouse, 2 Robins, 5 Eastern Bluebirds, a male Cardinal,
6 Song Sparrows, 18 Juncos, a late CHIPPING SPARROW, 9 Goldfinch, and a
House Sparrow.

Predictions:
A bit warmer with light south winds. Hey... it's happened on these
conditions before!
