Start Time: 9:00 am Daylight Time

End Time: 3:00 pm

Duration: 6 hours

Official Counter: Sue Ricciardi

Observers: Chris Reed, Dan Haas, Andy Higgs


Visitors: Cindy Godwin

Weather: Mostly cloudy; 63-69 degrees; excellent visibility; winds
mostly from the NNW, 5-12 mph

Raptor Observations: Not much flying today. The winds weren't optimal,
but not that unfavorable. Perhaps the pipeline needed refiling, but
even most of the few vultures that were observed lingered about
without migrating

Non-raptor Observations: The statewide May Count was held today.
Unfortunately, the Park was rather quiet. Notable were a pair of Wood
Ducks, Cedar Waxwings (67) and Prothonotary Warbler. ebird checklist
