Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter: Bill James

Observers: Don A.

Visitors:
Nope


Weather:
Brisk 3-4 wind from the NW all day with clouds fluctuating from white to
black and from 10 to 90%. Visibility was a 4 initially but with the
arrival of a cold front became a 5. Temperature ranged from 40 to 45 then
feel to 39; not too pleasant 3 to 5 winds.

Raptor Observations:
All birds on the west side and straight up as expected with NW winds. No
big birds. Don was indispensable today. He doesn't watch from his heel!

Non-raptor Observations:
A couple of soutbound hikers. Hunters noted on the way up. Not many
stoppersby today and no inquiries, unusually.

Predictions:
Less wind, more......
