Total observation time: 7 hours

Official Counter: Bob Kelly, Dave Eberly

Observers: Al Guarente, Alan Simon, Bob Kelly, Chuck Root, Dave Eberly,
Debbie Beer, John Mercer, Judy Mayer

Visitors:
Dick Rainier, Max Smith and a reporter from the Delaware County Time. (Look
for our pictures and a story in the next couple of day.)


Weather:
Mostly sunny and pleasant, with a nice cloud cover and winds usually with a
western component.

Raptor Observations:
4 Bald Eagles (2 adult, 1 juvenile and 1 fourth year), 6 Red-tailed Hawks,
1 Red-shoulder and 2 Cooper's Hawks were not counted, deemed local.

Non-raptor Observations:
1 Common nighthawk, 1 Double-crested Cormorant, 5 Ruby-throated
Hummingbirds

Predictions:
Plenty of sun and very few clouds with temperatures climbing into the mid
80's will make spotting birds challenging. However, a Southwesterly wind
in the 6 to 8 range, may push the birds off the mountains and towards us.
