Official Counter Pam Peters
Observers: Curt Morgan, Kyle Dudgeon, Leslie Preston


*Visitors:*
17, including excellent spotters in Kyle Dudgeon, Leslie Preston, Curt
Morgan (Albany) Brenda Inskeep (Stamford, CT) and Brad Beth Bidwell
(Queensbury). 5 students from Cobleskill were there early in the AM as part
of their fieldwork (Sam, Bailey, Tom, Drazio and Savannah). Myra Marty
Foland, David Diaz (Otsego Land Trust)

*Weather:*
Steady NW winds and temperature 28-30F. Early fog, drizzle and snow
obscured the valley and distant hills. That did not seem to affect the
birds. Visibility improved by 12noon.

*Raptor Observations:*
Red-tails, Sharpies and Goldens ruled the day. 3 Golden Eagles in the first
half hour and then it was non-stop. Most were from the NE and passed
directly over the site or down the valley, affording good looks. Local BE,
RT, RS. Thanks for the excellent help everyone! BAEA: 2:58ad. GOEA:
7:30unk, 7:50ad, 7:52juv, 9:20ad, 9:22(2ad), 9:50(3ad,1juv), 9:55juv,

*Non-raptor Observations:*
No time to look at other birds, but what was noticed: Phoebe, Yellow-rumped
Warbler, Pileated Woodpecker, and several skeins of Canada Geese and
Brants. At least one Common Loon.
