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.
