Official Counter: David Brown

Observers: Carol Spease, Dan Walker, Joe Sebastiani, John Traynor,
Kim Steininger

Visitors:
6


Weather:
Mostly sunny with moderate NNW winds.

Raptor Observations:
A great day for migration. A few migrating flocks of vultures. A lot of
migrating Buteos with 72 red-shoulders and 38 red-tails. 27 sharpies and 11
Coops. 15 bald eagles and one golden (a juvenile around 11:30am). A late
osprey.

Non-raptor Observations:
4 herring gulls, 13 common loons, 1 common raven, monarch, bat

Predictions:
Cloudy with rain in the afternoon. Winds E@8 gusting 12mph. It's hard to
predict how good it will be. We could see decent numbers of red-shoulders
if there is enough lift but probably small numbers of everything else.
