Non-raptor Observations:
Heard some chickadees on the walk up to the knob. The rest of the day was
void of passerines except for some dark-eyed juncos in the early afternoon.

7 ravens playing in the stiff wind today around the bowl, 5 Canada geese.

Early eagles were backdropped by the remaining pinks and oranges of the
sunrise. Lovely looks of these magnificent raptors.

Sunny, with a high near 50. West wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as
30 mph.
