Observers:

Visitors:
Scott Tuttle
Contributing observers: Jamie Pugliese, Sara Busch and Bob Kelly


Weather:
Warm with temperatures into the 80's, a mix of clouds and sun but southerly
winds.

Raptor Observations:
The adult male Harrier was the highlight of the day. He came by at 1:55
EDT

Non-raptor Observations:


Predictions:
Sun and clouds with temperature reaching 80 F. Winds are shifting due to a
small front coming through, but will be out of the NNE, so they may not be
a huge help. However, as of Friday, there were still Broad-wings in the
pipeline with small kettles seen in Ontario, New York and Maine, so we can
always hope.
