Official Counter: Sue Ricciardi

Observers: Chris Reed


Visitors: Cindy Godwin

Weather: Cloudy except for a small window of sun at the start; 66-69
degrees; good visibility; winds from the NE or ENE, 7-10 mph.

Raptor Observations: Few raptors under these weather conditions

Non-raptor Observations: This spring we have counted over 26,000 Blue
Jays thus far. Because they tend to fly at first light and then later
in the afternoon, the actual total is likely much higher.
