Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter: John Mercer

Visitors:
Dick Rainer, Dan Hayes


Weather:
Nice day, good clouds especially in the morning but steady Southwest winds
at 7 to 10 mph hampered the flight

Raptor Observations:
Worst beautiful day ever

Non-raptor Observations:
Nothing was moving only 7 Monarchs and no Blue Jays

Predictions:
A weak front should come through tonight and bring NW winds but only in the
4 to 8 mph range. Hopefully, the winds will be strong enough to bring some
birds.
