Official Counter: Greg Lawrence
Visitors: Part of a Rochester Birding Association field trip plus Lynn Bergmeyer, Robert Buckert, and a few others. Special thanks to Dale Drexel for fixing the loose board on the platform railing!
Weather: Sunny, but very cold wind right in our faces
Raptor Observations: Local Northern Harrier and Red-tailed Hawks plus one migrant Red-tailed Hawk and four Turkey Vultures that came up but moved very reluctantly
Non-raptor Observations: Two Red-throated Loons on the bay. The Northern Shrike was very obliging today and many visitors got great looks.
Predictions: Mostly cold and unfavorable winds for next two weeks-probably little to no movement ======================================================================== Report submitted by Greg Lawrence (<glawrence21...>) Braddock Bay information may be found at: http://www.bbrr.org/
