Visitors:
Robin Queenan


Weather:
Even though our season officially ended 11/15 Comfortable temperatures and
a decent westerly wind brought out 4 observers to try and catch some late
season migrants. The skies were a little too clear for optimal hawk
watching conditions.

Raptor Observations:
A good number of non-migrant vultures and the usual assortment of local
raptors were in the sky.
Our 3rd golden eagle of the season passed over.

Non-raptor Observations:
a line of 7-8 snow geese were seen in the distance

Predictions:
More clouds which should help viewing. Favorable nw winds with a slight
chance of a rain shower.
A slight chance of showers after 11am. Partly sunny, with a high near 47.
Northwest wind 5 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
