Observation start time: 07:00:00 Observation end time: 16:00:00 Total observation time: 9 hours
Official Counter: Anna Stunkel
Observers: Julia Magill, Rose Leong, Wes Hetrick
Weather: Light winds were generally from the southwest, with partly cloudy skies becoming mostly clear in the afternoon. It was a hot day, with temperatures in the mid seventies to mid eighties and little breeze.
Raptor Observations: The morning had a slow start. The afternoon was better, but most of today's raptors were tiny specks flying relatively low on the east side. Given this pattern, there may have been a more significant flight going on out of sight along the eastern side of the peninsula.
Non-raptor Observations: A few small flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds passed this morning. Other observations included:
5 Red-headed Woodpeckers 2 Bobolinks 2 Brown Thrashers 1 Common Nighthawk
6 Monarchs 1 Common Five-lined Skink ======================================================================== Report submitted by Brian Taber (<Taberzz...>) Kiptopeke Hawkwatch information may be found at: www.cvwo.org
