Visitors: Pete S. was up and some picnickers late. Pam!
Weather: Beautiful day on the mountain, if a bit too blue. Temps 68-74 with NW winds 3 to 2 to 1, with only a few clouds early. Visibility was a 4 throughout and cloud cover 20% to 5%.
Raptor Observations: With NW winds we expect more big birds, especially with good NW winds. Adult Eagles at 11:45 and 1:12 were way out; sole Osprey did come right overhead. Saw BWs early with the clouds and picked a few in the blue later in the watch. ABEs: 11:44, 1:12.
Non-raptor Observations: Not too busy on the parkway.
