Observers:

Visitors:
None.


Weather:
Warm. Basically bright sunshine, with a layer of high clouds gradually
creeping in fr0m the north, covering half the sky by the end of the
observation period. Basically warm, somewhat windy.

Raptor Observations:
Disappointing, considering the good weather, especially the favorable wind
direction. All TVs except for a very few buteos. Most birds were very high;
a few were low, easy to see.

Non-raptor Observations:
Not much. Occasionally an overflight by a very few starlings, crows, and
gulls.

Predictions:
Not good: gloomy, colder, with scattered showers.
