Official Counter: Jerry McWilliams

Observers: Jerry McWilliams, Russ States

Visitors:
Russ States assisted with the count. Bonnie Ginader and Sam Stull stopped
by for a few minutes.


Weather:
Cloudy in the AM becoming variably cloudy later. Light WSW wind early
becoming WNW and still cold. AM snow showers.

Raptor Observations:
Turkey Vultures continued their slow NE movement along or near the
Lakeshore. A few more hawks today, but still nothing to write home about.

Non-raptor Observations:
Wood Duck-1, Canada Goose-3, Common Loon-13, Double-crested Cormorant-33,
Great Blue Heron-3, Northern Flicker-2, Eastern Meadowlark-4, several
flocks of mixed blackbirds.

Predictions:
A bit warmer with SSW wind, but light snow likely in the AM and rain in the
PM. If the precip. holds off, there should be birds moving, hopefully more
hawks.
