Total observation time: 4 hours

Official Counter: Ed Sailer

Observers: Dan Niven, Jim Saller

Weather:
Fairly consistent weather conditions throughout the count today. Light NNE
winds, some clouds, and temps in the mid-upper 70's F.

Raptor Observations:
Much of the flight was out along the parkway, with a few birds coming
overhead at the hawkwatch. Local Ospreys flying around the bay.

Non-raptor Observations:


Predictions:
Sunny skies. High 74F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Doesn't sound like ideal
conditions for a good flight, but with over 100 birds today on nearly the
same conditions, there could certainly be some movement.
