Official Counter: Jerry McWilliams

Observers: Jerry McWilliams, Roger Donn

Visitors:
Roger Donn assisted with the count.


Weather:
Cloudless skies all day with continued ENE wind and below normal temps.

Raptor Observations:
A few TVs moving, with some effort, slowly NE against strong winds with
several often doing an about face and wandering SW. They remained low and
close to the lake through the count. Few hawks passed the watch.

Non-raptor Observations:
American Robin--8

Predictions:
Even though the predicted south winds still have an easterly component, it
might make for a good flight ahead of an approaching low pressure system.
