Greetings from the mountain!
The WNW/NW winds gave us 14 GOEAs including one carrying a transmitter and
10 BAEAs as well as a few RTHAs.
Thanks to everyone who visited and helped spot!
Tomorrow the winds are predicted to start SSE and shift S. Des will be
covering Bald Eagle and I will be at Tussey Mtn.

Happy birding!
