Weather:
Hot . Wind SW to NW with very little cloud cover until late in the day.
Temperature started at 80 and climbed to 96F. Winds were from SW to NW
between 4 and 15 mph

Raptor Observations:
Local birds seen were Bald Eagle, Cooper's Hawk and Red-tailed Hawks. A
few Broad-wings were still coming through today.
Thanks to Alan Simon who took over the watch while John talked to the
school students.

Non-raptor Observations:
1 Tree Swallow
5 Cedar Waxwings
3 Common Raven
a flock of about 85 Brown-headed Cowbirds on the lawn near the gazebo

Predictions:
Mostly cloudy and significantly cooler with temperatures reaching the mid
60's instead of the mid 90's. A chance for on and off rain with an east
wind will make this a difficult day.
