Greetings from the mountain!
Though the count was delayed due to the weather and the snow flurries
continued into the afternoon, we had at least one BAEA and one GOEA move
through every hour.

Tomorrow the winds will shift SW and there is a chance of more snow in the
afternoon. The watch will be held at the S lookout.

Happy birding!
