Official Counter: Henry Walters

Observers: Anne & David Forsyth

Visitors:
Thanks again to Anne and David Forsyth for their patience and company on
this cold, action-packed day. Their tales of Norwegian fish oil and Marbled
Murrelets in the Pribilof Islands staved off the solitary-confinement
feeling.


Weather:
A cold coat of wet snow lighting up the landscape this morning. Overcast
and 27 degrees all day. Weak northeast winds.

Raptor Observations:
A young red-tail kiting over the spruces greeted us this morning before
9:00; little did we suspect she'd be the last raptor of the day! The north
simply had nothing to give us.

Non-raptor Observations:
We hopscotched between snowshoe hare tracks all the way from the parking
lot. Two flocks of robins (19, 15) were our only company at the platform to
speak of. Other migrants were limited to a skein of Canada Geese (16), a
goldfinch, and a handful of juncos and white-throated sparrows. Local
pileated flirted with us from afar in Morse code.

Predictions:
A little sun and slightly warmer...an improvement!
