Weather: Mostly clear with cirrus clouds moving in later. Pleasant temps. with persistent westerly winds.
Raptor Observations: With the west winds birds were spread out across a wide plain. The few vultures passing through took their time moving east and often did a reversal and headed back west. Broad-wings were few and only singles or in groups of two or three.
Non-raptor Observations: Highlight was a Common Tern moving south well away from the lake. Great Blue heron 3, Ruby-throated Hummingbird 4,Cedar Waxwing 26, Blue Jay 100, Bobolink 8.
Predictions: Cloudy with SW very early quickly shifting to west the NW. Not likely to be much flying. Jerry McWilliamsErie, Erie County, <Pa.jerrymcw...>
