Official Counter: Katrina Fenton

Observers: Dick Haas, Levi Burford, Mark Timmerman, Marsha Haas

Visitors:
There were 39 visitors to the hawk watch, including 16 Worcester AMC hikers
and an all-women hiking group that came through late in the day.


Weather:
Monument Valley seemed to have replaced the White Mountains, and the Green
Mountains as well for a time. Peaks grew spires that widened and flattened
into buttes, arcs, and hanging rocks that would gradually separate from
their bases and float until they dissolved away. The wind was out of the
southwest at 20-25mph, and only a few patches of sunshine found their way
through the overcast. Temperatures hovered in the mid 30s.

Raptor Observations:
Not much flying in the south wind. There were almost as many Red-tailed
Hawks lingering to hunt the ridge as there were migrants.

Non-raptor Observations:
Non-raptor Day List:
Blue Jay- 2
Common Raven- 22
Pileated Woodpecker- 1
Golden-crowned Kinglet- 2
White-throated Sparrow- 1
Common Raven- 22
