Observation start time: 10:00:00 Observation end time: 15:00:00 Total observation time: 5 hours
Official Counter: Greg Lawrence
Visitors: a couple hardy birders stopped by for a short time
Weather: cold, WNW winds today, with some light bursts of snow. Not ideal at all, but the westerly component definitely pushed some birds through.
Raptor Observations: four Turkey Vultures, an adult Bald Eagle, and five Red-tailed Hawks
Non-raptor Observations: flock of 95 Snow Geese, adult Lesser Black-backed Gull, and the resident Shrike. Full ebird list at: ebird.org/view/checklist/S43534816
Predictions: might get a few birds when there's a westerly component in the wind, but otherwise pretty awful hawkwatching weather until next weekend maybe. Snow mid-week doesn't help either. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Greg Lawrence (<glawrence21...>) Braddock Bay information may be found at: http://www.bbrr.org/
