> Weather:
> Fog, in the morning, slowly moved out towards the coast, stalling over the shoreline for most of the day. There was some slight clearing mid morning, and it looked as the though the sun might break through. The cool damp air disappeared momentarily and temps climbed up to about 55. The warm temps were short lived however, and clouds closed back in and brought passing showers for the rest of the count. The count was closed an hour and fifteen minutes early, due to bringing dense fog moving in from the coast.
>
> Raptor Observations:
> Not much movement today. A few local birds were out displaying or foraging. A Merlin showed up right on cue, after a group of people inquired about the small fierce Falcon.
>
> Non-raptor Observations:
> The morning hours were more productive in hearing and seeing other species. I tallied a total of 35 different species, which were seen or heard from the summit. There were two new arrivals to the mountain, which were, a Black-and-white Warbler, and a Black-throated Green Warbler. Double-crested Cormorants were on the move today. I tallied 678 in total.
>
> Predictions:
> More rain is predicted for tomorrow, along with winds from the SSE. Temperatures may be similar to today, in the low 50's.
