Weather:
Winds were light and variable, often from the northwest. Skies were clear,
with temperatures in the seventies.

Raptor Observations:
There was a decent flight, with a good number of Bald Eagles of various
ages. The first red-shoulder of the season passed by quite close to the
platform.

Non-raptor Observations:
The flickers are here! A total of 1,011 Northern Flickers were counted,
mainly in the early morning. A massive northbound flight of warblers was
occurring on the east side, but most of them were too far away to identify
from the hawkwatch platform. Other observations included:

19 Cedar Waxwings
10 Red-headed Woodpeckers
5 Snowy Egrets
4 Gray Catbirds (3 of which were putzing around by the birdbath)
3 Eastern Kingbirds
3 Great Blue Herons
2 Black-and-white Warblers
2 Brown Thrashers
2 Wood Ducks
1 Eastern Phoebe
1 Great Egret
1 Hairy Woodpecker
1 House Finch
1 Traill's Flycatcher

1 Red Fox
