Visitors: Thank you to the group of Nature Conservancy folks and teachers who stopped by for a raptor ID workshop today!
Weather: Light to moderate winds were from the southeast, with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the seventies.
Raptor Observations: It was a slow day, with just a few birds trickling through. We had some nice views of peregrines in the afternoon, though.
Non-raptor Observations: Five Gray Catbirds, a few Chipping Sparrows and cardinals, "Jerry Garcia" the mockingbird, and an Eastern Towhee (FOS) were having a grand time at the birdbath today. Speaking of the mockingbird, we have been enjoying some new additions to his repertoire lately. These include Red-tailed Hawk and Brown-headed Nuthatch calls. Other observations included:
