> Weather:
> Multiple species of clouds filled the sky today, making for great spotting conditions, had there been more birds. Winds were strong, coming mostly from the W, which may have pushed birds E towards the coast. Temperatures were mild at about 43 degrees. Visibility remained clear, with some heat distortion.
>
> Raptor Observations:
> More local Bald Eagle shenanigans coincided with the presence of the larger weekend crowds, which most people were pleased to witness.
>
> Non-raptor Observations:
> Another quiet day for non raptors. 5 Common Mergansers were the highest number of any northbound species.
>
> Predictions:
> Mostly a dry sunny start to Sunday, with winds on the lighter side, at about 10 mph from the N, possibly increasing by the afternoon. Temps may climb to the lower 40's for a high. Hopefully lighter wind speeds will keep birds from being pushed too far away from the mountain, towards the coast.
