105 raptors today representin 10 species yo. Mild easterly winds in the
morning and early afternoon pushed most raptors low on the east side. As
winds calmed in the afternoon the decreasing numbers of raptors passed high
overhead. Temps from mid 40s to mid 50's with excellent viewing conditions
under sunny skies. There was an almost continuous movement of robins
moving from the east over to the west side of the ridge.

Our frequent flyers today: Peter Low, Kim Boodie, Clay Croften, David
Braunschweiger and Tom Crabtree. We enjoyed the good company of 4 members
of the Prineville Bird Club on a field trip led by Chuck Gates. Our day
was enriched with an additional 9 visitors and it was very encouraging to
see two young couples getting out and getting after it on our public lands.
