Observation start time: 07:00:00 Observation end time: 16:00:00 Total observation time: 9 hours
Official Counter: David Brown
Observers: Carol Spease, Dan Walker, Joe Sebastiani, John Traynor, Kim Steininger
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. ======================================================================== Report submitted by David Brown (<davidebrownpa...>) Ashland Nature Center information may be found at: www.delnature.org
