Weather:
Light (2/3) WNW winds for most of day turning NW in last hour; Temperature
-- 1-9°C; Cloud cover -- 0-7-0%

Raptor Observations:
Small movement throughout day -- possibly more Red-tails migrating but not
definite; Adult Bald Eagles that had been hanging around Spot Pond seem to
have left for warmer climes - headed southeast over Boston Harbor (all
other migrants went SW). Migrating adult male Merlin at 2:55 was last
bird seen migrating

Non-migrating - At least 5 (possibly twice as many) Red-tailed Hawks; and a
SS Hawk that arrived at 4 PM and seemed to settle down

Non-raptor Observations:
50 Canada Geese

Predictions:
tomorrow will be southwest winds, but Friday early AM will be strong
Northwest winds becoming even stronger during the day. Good winds for
migration - if you come dress for bitter cold (wind chill). Saturday winds
will gradually shift to SW, but may be migrants backed up
