Observers:

Weather:
The rains from Hurricane Zeta finally moved out and the back flow NE winds
brought a decent push of raptors despite the heavy cloud cover

Raptor Observations:
Red-shoulders and sharpies were the stars of the day


Non-raptor Observations:
Canada Goose-337
Double-crested Cormorant-2
Common Grackle-100
Ring-billed Gull-2

Predictions:
The day has some potential as the storm got out of the way leaving some
chilly but favorable winds. Golden Eagle??

Areas of frost before 10am. Otherwise, sunny, with a high near 48. North
wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the afternoon.
