Official Counter: Anna Stunkel

Weather:
Light to moderate winds were generally from the east and southeast, with
partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the seventies.

Raptor Observations:
There was a decent Osprey flight, and a good number of Bald Eagles and
kestrels. Birds were flying over quite low during the morning, which was
the busiest part of the day.

Non-raptor Observations:
A Solitary Sandpiper flew low over the platform this morning. We had a nice
view of a Viceroy butterfly which landed in the nearby holly bush this
afternoon.
