Observation start time: 07:00:00 Observation end time: 15:00:00 Total observation time: 8 hours
Official Counter: Anna Stunkel
Weather: Light to moderate winds mostly wavered between east southeast and east northeast, with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid seventies to mid eighties.
Raptor Observations: Broad-wing movement picked up a bit today, and several peregrines passed. It's nice to see some consistent migration of a few peregrines per day this early; hopefully it bodes well for a strong movement later as well.
Non-raptor Observations: Since two additional hummingbird feeders have been added to the platform, activity has been hopping! Today I estimated about eight Ruby-throated Hummingbirds zipping back and forth, quite possibly more. Tree Swallow movement suddenly burst forth today, with at least a couple hundred of them flying. Three Glossy Ibises were seen on the east side. A Common Five-lined Skink was sunning on the platform this morning. An assortment of various fuzzy caterpillars were crawling around on the platform, also. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Brian Taber (<Taberzz...>) Kiptopeke Hawkwatch information may be found at: www.cvwo.org
