Visitors:
It was nice to have visitors from High Country Audubon Society and a group
of Master Naturalists today. Thanks for visiting!


Weather:
Light winds were variable, mostly with a westerly component. Skies were
clear to mostly sunny, with temperatures soaring well into the eighties.
(Isn't it supposed to be October?)

Raptor Observations:
There was a decent flight today, with very nice low and close looks at
birds. We had some especially nice views of peregrines. Most of the
peregrines that we are seeing are still adult birds.
