Observation start time: 08:45:00 Observation end time: 15:00:00 Total observation time: 6.25 hours
Official Counter: John Mercer
Observers: Al Guarente, Alan Simon, Bill Cranny, Liam Hart
Weather: Pleasant day, lots of sun with winds from NW or WNW building in strength as the day progresses. Cloud cover missing early and not very heavy later in the day
Raptor Observations: Two local adult Bald Eagles popped up and down several time throughout the day, as did three local red-tails and a Cooper's Hawk
Non-raptor Observations: One Common Raven, a loose flock of about 90 Double-crested Cormorant flew by off in the distance. Two Yellow-rumped Warblers were spotted.
Predictions: Tomorrow should be another pleasant day, with the high reaching about 68F. Unfortunately, the winds will shift to the SSW around 6mph which will not help the flight. ======================================================================== Report submitted by John Mercer (<mercer1135...>) Rose Tree Park information may be found at: www.rtphawkwatch.org
