Visitors: Thanks to Bernie O'Connor who kept count of the vultures while I scanned the sky for hawks. Joao Taveres and Bonnie Ginader stopped for a short while.
Weather: Variably cloudy early becoming mostly clear with light NNW wind and continued cold.
Raptor Observations: There was a unexpected number of vultures moving today despite the cold winds off the lake. The flight began light along the lake then moved inland about a mile from the Lake Erie shore, where most of the birds passed through most of the day relatively low. Very few hawks noted among the kettles of vultures.
