Official Counter: Andrew Wolfgang, Randy Phillips

Observers: Bob Reiter, Craig McCoy, Ed Hamberger, Jim Wendt

Visitors:
41. There was a well attended program at the lookout. Thank you to everyone
who attended (including the Sharp-shinned Hawk)...counters feel that
perhaps the scheduling of an interpretive program impacts the raptor
flight.


Weather:
Calm winds and 100% cloud cover made for a warm day at the lookout with a
high temperature in the 70's (22 C). Visibility was poor with fog at the
beginning of the count less than 4 km view from the lookout. Later haze
impacted visibility.



Raptor Observations:
One migrant Sharp-shinned Hawk

Non-raptor Observations:
Eastern Towhee-12
White-throated Sparrow-12
Palm Warbler-2
American Black Duck-1
Mallard-2
