Raptor Observations: No raptors during the first hour. A few Turkey vultures and a couple of Red-tails went through between 10:00am and 1:00pm. TVs picked up a bit during the remainder of the count with the WSW wind and a little heat from the greater amount of sunshine.
Non-raptor Observations: Not much non-raptor movement.
