vulture

Non-raptor Observations:
99 Canada Geese,
2 Meadow Fritillary

Predictions:
Warmer, temperatures climbing towards 80 with very little cloud cover, will
make spotting birds difficult. However, a west wind may help the count.
If they haven't come by Sunday, we will miss the Broad-wings this year.
