Visitors:
The lady waiting to pick up the runner.


Weather:
Fogged in initially, despite a healthy breeze from the ESE. Temperature
ranged from 21.1 to 23.3, cloud cover from 100% early to 60% late,
visibility from 2 early to 4 late. Vultures finally got up in the last
hour and a couple of hunting RTs went by.

Raptor Observations:
No migrants today. Primarily searched the Carl side.

Non-raptor Observations:
2 AT hikers and one AT runner!
Cedar waxwings, goldfinches, a raven were looking for Joyce.

Predictions:
Looks like rain in the morning with a lowering ceiling in the afternoon and
NE winds. Better chance of finding water than raptors, perchance.
