Weather:
Warm with light SE breezes and occasional gusts. Low puffy cumulus drifted
north to be topped by a higher cirrus layer, all of which coalesced into
solid cloud cover by quitting time.

Raptor Observations:
The 1:31 BAEA looked wrecked, with several different lengths of molting and
missing feathers and blotches of white on upper and lower wings and across
its belly.
Solid parade of Sharpies down the east side of the ridge, heading into the
wind.

Non-raptor Observations:
