Light breeze from the north, sunny, skies mostly clear, temps in low to mid

difficult viewing conditions as well.

A few red-tails & vultures were around but the park was generally quiet.
A flyover flock of 5 pine siskins was a highlight.

Predictions:
Heavy rain, mostly afternoon to early evening predicted.
