Weather:
Winds were light and variable, often from the southwest and west southwest.

high eighties.

Raptor Observations:
Most birds were flying high and far out on the east side today. There was a
decent Osprey flight, along with a few kestrels.

Non-raptor Observations:
Today, two Anhingas made an appearance! They flew over the platform heading
northwards at 11:31 AM EST today, and then circled high before continuing
onwards to the north. There was very little passerine migration today.
Twelve Cedar Waxwings flew by.
