Weather: Partly sunny with light to moderate SW winds. Hot and humid.
Raptor Observations: A completely white broad-winged hawk soared with some turkey vultures and then settled back down behind the trees near the right saddle. I was able to obtain distant documentation shots which will be available on eBird.
Otherwise only a few broad-wings. Had a dozen migrating bald eagles plus a few more that I didn't count. Had a small number of Accipiters and falcons. A juvenile red-shouldered hawk streamed high overhead.
