Nice to have Dale to help count. Appreciate Bill and Katie stopping by to
help spot.
Had a nice couple from Germany stop by briefly. 2 hikers today, one in
shorts.


Weather:
COLD. Temps started at 24F and went to 35F. Cloud cover was 50-100%. Clouds
were high and made a nice backdrop. Visibility was a 5. Winds were ESE at
1-2. Really only felt the wind when looking into Eastern Valley.

Birds seen on both sides and rarely over the knob. Really far out to the
West, but closer to the East. First bird was at 10:45a , an RT. Last bird
was an RT just after 2p.

Non-raptor Observations:


Predictions:
Still cold, but a little warmer than today.
