Weather:
Cloudy all day and much cooler feeling than was predicted. Winds mostly
South around 7 mph. A little bit of sun just before 2EDT started the Turkey
Vulture parade.

Raptor Observations:
Most of today's activity occurred after 2EDT. Just at 2, the local Merlin
went after the local Cooper's giving us a good show. Locals included one
Adult Bald Eagle, two Red-tailed Hawks, 2 Cooper's Hawk, 9 Turkey Vultures
and 10 Black Vultures.

Non-raptor Observations:
One Great Blue Heron and two Common Raven

Predictions:
Clouds and sun all day, temperatures should reach 65F. Winds will be ENE
around 6 mph. Not especially promising, but with the approaching weather,
some birds may decide that it is time to move despite the weather
