Official Counter: Gene Sattler

Observers:

Weather:
Cloudy, NNE 8-12 mph, 76 degrees F. Sun almost glimmered through a few
times.

Raptor Observations:
Adult Mississippi Kite kettled briefly in front on west flank then streamed
through quickly near end of the hour. Three BW came through shortly after
within a few minutes of one another. Only up for an hour to make sure site
was ready for observations beginning next week.

Non-raptor Observations:
Monarch-1

Predictions:
No counting before Tuesday as Tropical Storm Florence produces clouds and
rain (the latter primarily Sunday/Monday) as it passes to our south, then
forecast to angle north passing to our west. After three seasons of
virtually no coverage looking to cover the primary portion of the Broadwing
season in the coming two weeks once the weather breaks.
