Red-shoulder Hawks, Turkey and Black Vulture

Non-raptor Observations:
Monarch numbers have been depressingly low this year so far

Predictions:
Still some Broadwings coming through New England, so tomorrow could be very
similar to today, with most birds showing up early and the afternoon being
challenging. The more eyes, the better. The day should be pleasant, with
temperatures making the upper 70's and very few clouds. Winds will be from
the south.
