Official Counter: Anna Stunkel

Observers:

Weather:
Light winds started out mostly from the southwest, becoming more westerly
and then southeasterly. Skies were mostly clear to partly cloudy, with
temperatures in the mid seventies to high eighties.

Raptor Observations:
It was still relatively slow, but there were some nice views of passing
harriers and peregrines today. For the most part, migrating raptors were
high-flying.

Non-raptor Observations:
Some Barn Swallows were on the move this afternoon, but passerine activity
was rather quiet in general. One Great Egret flew by. Drama unfolded when a
large jumping spider was attacked by a wasp on the platform roof, and they
both tumbled to the ground.
