Weather:
Heavy overcast skies and gusty winds from the outer fringes of Hurricane
Dorian off the Carolinas coast. Intermittent light drizzle turned more
steady and heavier about 1 pm DST so the hawk watch ended at 1:25 DST

Raptor Observations:
only one migrant, a BW early. An imm, probably juv, Bald Eagle flew in at
low altitude turned and disappeared behind our "disappearing tree". It was
not counted as a migrant.

Non-raptor Observations:
Tree swallows and chimney swifts were around. Also 3 eastern kingbirds
squabbling in the metasequoias, at least 3 eastern bluebirds, and a small
flock of cedar waxwings.

Predictions:
Could be a nice day with some birds. Mostly sunny, with a high near 79.
Northwest wind 7 to 10 mph.
