Weather:
A brief period of morning sun with light southwest winds. A fast-moving
thunderstorm with heavy rain then increasingly strong southwest winds and
drizzle. When a tree fell on the power lines and the fire department had to
come I decided it was time to leave.

Raptor Observations:
A few dozen turkey vultures pushed through early before the wind got too
strong. One Cooper's Hawk, one Red-tailed Hawk, and two American Kestrels.

Non-raptor Observations:
9 Killdeer, 5 Great Blue Herons, 3 Tree Swallows, 2 Eastern Meadowlarks.
