Visitors:
It was great to see many visitors for Outdoor Exploration Day and the
Kiptopeke Challenge today. Thanks to all who stopped by and helped out!


Weather:
Light winds were variable with a southerly component for most of the day.
Skies were overcast in the morning, then mostly clear later on.
Temperatures were in the seventies and eighties.

Raptor Observations:
It was rather slow, although we had a decent peregrine flight.

Non-raptor Observations:
We enjoyed participating in the Kiptopeke Challenge today as the Piping
Platformers. A few highlights from the platform included:

7 Cedar Waxwings
1 Caspian Tern
1 Solitary Sandpiper
1 Wilson's Snipe
