Official Counter: Jerry McWilliams

Observers:

Visitors:
Bernie O'Connor helped spot birds. Joao Taveres, Linda McWilliams, and
Bonnie Ginader.


Weather:
Variably cloudy becoming cloudy later with rain arriving. SSW to 15 mph
and warm.

Raptor Observations:
Despite the desirable winds, very few birds observed, but what was moving
was right along the lake. Rain arrived around mid-day shutting down the
watch.

Non-raptor Observations:
Double-crested Cormorant--35, Great Blue Heron--1, Blue Jay--7.
Yellow-rumped Warbler--2, American Goldfinch--4. Common Green Darner--1

Predictions:
Continued SSW wind with a 60% chance of showers. Probably not unlike
today.
