Observation start time: 10:45:00 Observation end time: 15:00:00 Total observation time: 4.25 hours
Observers: Bill & Katie James
Visitors: Jerry Bond (James' son) was by again today. He's an older gentleman who was friends with, and played mandolin with, Jim Hylton who helped us out many days before his untimely death. Their band visited nursing homes in a large area around Roanoke.
Weather: Low ceiling all day with the Peaks' peaks shrouded until mid-afternoon. Visibility 3 with temperature ranging from 75 early to 80 and cloud cover from 100% to 50%. Visibility 3 all day.
Raptor Observations: Some early Turkey Vultures (no blacks all day) and some ravens. One eye level BW first, one RT late.
Non-raptor Observations: Very many bikers today and most waved and several stopped and talked and were interested in what we were doing. A very nice couple from Germany were curious.
Predictions: Better, but hotter. ======================================================================== Report submitted by Bill James (<bijame...>) Harvey's Knob information may be found at: http://bijame.googlepages.com/home
