Observation start time: 09:00:00
Observation end time: 15:00:00
Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter: Ken Klapper

Observers: Crawford Lyons, Levi Burford

Visitors:
Fifteen - thank to everyone who stopped by and shared interesting
conversation!


Weather:
Partly cloudy, variable to light southeast winds. Temps started in the
upper 20s and climbed to the low 40s for the afternoon.

Raptor Observations:
Very few migrants moving today, but one was a juvenile Bald Eagle... At
least three other non-migrant Bald Eagles were seen today - another
juvenile and two adults.

Non-raptor Observations:
18 Canada Geese, 4 Mallards, 9 Common Merganser, a Herring Gull, 89 crows,
4 ravens, several blue jays, chickadee, titmouse, 2 robins, 10 bluebirds, 2
Song Sparrows, 2 lingering Chipping Sparrows, several juncos, 14 Snow
Buntings, a male cardinal, 23 goldfinch, a few House Sparrow, and a
White-tailed Deer seen from the property (but outside the fencing) by
Crawford.

Predictions:
Overcast, light north winds, and perhaps a snow or rain shower, especially
in the afternoon. Overall numbers will probably be low but you can't
dismiss the possibility of a Goshawk or Golden Eagle moving through,
especially with some north winds. There have also been some good
non-raptors seen both here and at Pack Monadnock recently - this time of
year exciting birds often turn up when you put in some effort!
