Official Counter: Chris Pugliese, Curt Calafut
Visitors: Contributing observers, times not available: Bob Kelly, Bill Roache, Jamie Pugliese, Debbie Beer
Weather: Gentle WNW winds became northerly. Mostly clear skies gave way to some high cumulus clouds in the afternoon.
Raptor Observations: A good day today. Steady north winds pushed more remnants of the BW's our way. Very few kettles today; largest group streaming through was 60 birds. Good to get some support from additional eyes, particularly earlier in the day. Increasing afternoon clouds made things easier, and birds continued to move through well past 4. Last bird was a low flying Merlin at 5 pm.Good way to wrap up.
Non-raptor Observations: Black-throated Blue Warbler-1 Blackpoll warbler-1
Monarch butterfly: 41
Predictions: Much like today, NE winds NWS: Sunny, with a high near 74. Northeast wind around 6 mph becoming calm in the afternoon. ======================================================================== Report submitted by David Eberly (<david.eberly...>) Rose Tree Park information may be found at: www.rtphawkwatch.org
