Observers:

Weather:
Moderate winds were from the southeast and east this afternoon, with mostly
clear to partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid eighties.

Raptor Observations:
Not bad for a couple hours of pre-season counting. A few birds were on the
move, mainly high-flying Ospreys.

Non-raptor Observations:
About 200 Eastern Kingbirds were moving, along with quite a few Purple
Martins. Other highlights included:

3 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, two of which discovered the feeder
2 Bobolinks
1 American Redstart
1 Yellow-billed Cuckoo

Predictions:
Tomorrow will be the first official day of the fall 2018 season. We hope to
see you on the platform!
