Weather:
The wind was the story of the day. The skies were partly cloudy. Winds were
from the NW averaging around 25 mph gusting into the mid 30s mph.
Temperatures were in the low to mid 40s which made the wind chill
tolerable.

Raptor Observations:
Some of the birds were getting tossed in the wind. Some were being pushed
along at a rapid speed and many were in a tucked position which made ID
sometimes challenging.
A nice push of harriers in the 1-2 hour
There were 4 adult and one subadult bald eagle

Non-raptor Observations:
only about 30 Canada Geese seen
Double crested cormorant-15
Common Loon-3
Common raven-2

Predictions:
A sunny day with much more tolerable wind
Mostly sunny, with a high near 53. West wind 10 to 15 mph.
