(No hawk watch Sunday, canceled due to weather.)

Temperatures remained in the low 40's under mostly overcast skies. Weak
westerly winds in the morning slowly increased to a fresh breeze by mid
afternoon that pushed 58 raptors south. We had a hole of sunshine on the
leeward side of Mt. Jefferson until it closed mid afternoon when a snow
flurry chased us home.

27 Turkey Vultures (one large kettle)
3 Osprey
3 Bald Eagle
12 Sharp-shinned Hawk
3 Cooper's Hawk
2 Red-tailed Hawk
1 Red-shouldered Hawk
2 Golden Eagle
1 Peregine Falcon
3 Unid. Accipiter
1 Unid. Buteo

Participants today: Peter Low, Judy Meredith, Leanna Taylor, Courtney
Kelly Jet, Matt Cahill.

A wise old owl sat in an oak,
The more he heard,
The less he spoke;
Why aren't we all like that wise old bird?
