Official Counter: Claudia Sacks

Observers: Dan Kell, Rob Keith

Weather:
Cold this morning with the trail showing signs of a frozen ground. Groups
of leaves on the walk up were elevated from the ground itself; looked like
the water under them lifted them in the freeze. Temps 21-37. Light wind
in the morning rising to 6-7 mph in the afternoon from the S. Cloudy in
the morning becoming clear with a crisp blue sky in the afternoon.

Raptor Observations:
BE(1): 0936i

Non-raptor Observations:
A lovely look of an adult red tail in the bowl today. Did a couple of
circles for us before peeling off and heading south. Really lovely views
of his obvious red shoulders, blue-grey wingtips, and boldly striped tail.
Always something magical to be seen on the mountain!
Tufted titmice, chickadees, and juncos chirped hello today.
