Greetings from the mountain!
It was a completely birdless count today due to snow and unfavorable winds.
It's looking to be poor conditions again tomorrow, so the count will be put
off until it's better on Thursday.

Happy birding!

There was a White-Winged Scoter this morning at Colyer, hanging out with a Hooded Merganser and two Ruddy Ducks.

Also, the domestic goose and mallard mix friend are still there.

Attached are charts showing this year's daily GE pattern for 9 hawk watches.

It will be interesting to see how this extraordinarily late flight will
play out. Bald Eagle Mt HW has counted about 2/3 of the 2019 total there.

Greetings from the mountain!
Another good push of GOEAs moved through today. The weather is less
favorable for migration tomorrow, but it looks promising on Thursday so we
expect the eagle numbers to continue increasing.

Happy birding!

Hello from the (birdless) mountain!
I had dreams about rough-legs again so even though the weather wasn't
great, I was compelled to spend a few hours at the watchsite to make sure I
wasn't missing anything... no roughies unfortunately.
Tomorrow and Tuesday the weather looks much more promising for migration,
so we are expecting to keep the GOEA numbers climbing.

Happy birding!

Subject: Fri/Sat and season GE at Stone Mt.
It was an excellent two-day period at Stone Mt. for Golden Eagles. 38 over Friday/Saturday, which I believe is second highest total in PA., topped only by Bald Eagle ridge.

The 25 GE on Friday is tied for 4th best day ever.

The season total so far is 138, tied for for 5th best season ever, with a few more birds to come. (Record high season was 218).

NOTE on travel:
If you go up to Stone while there is snow, be aware the road is not maintained at all (except to remove downed trees), and can be especially treacherous on the Stone Valley side. The Allensville side (from Big Valley) is usually better but the upper part of the road there may also be a problem.

Today (Sunday) does not look good for raptor migration.

Greg

Greetings from the mountain!
Today was another beautiful day for watching GOEAs. Nick and I saw the
second migrant of the day fly super close to the watchsite before it
noticed us, which was an exciting highlight!
Unfortunately, tomorrow's forecast doesn't look as promising. Depending on
how the wind speed/direction are, I may come up to the north lookout for a
while, but the current prediction of WSW winds and a chance of
precipitation are not optimal for migration.

Happy birding!

Greetings from the (snowy) mountain,
Wow what an awesome day at the watch! We broke our record for peak GOEAs
for the season and are up to 174 total so far. A large chunk of today's
birds moved through first thing in the morning before the heaviest snow
hit, and then were trickling through for the rest of the count.
Tomorrow winds are predicted to continue WNW, but be a little lighter than
today. We will have more sun than snow. Hopefully the birds keep coming and
we can catch up with our numbers!

Happy birding and hunting!

Subject: Golden Eagle Cumulative Charts for 5 hawk watches
In the same way that I have created cumulative count charts for Golden
Eagles at the Tussey Mt spring count, I have done the same for 5 fall
counts. Very interesting results.

At Waggoner's Gap and Stone Mt, this years's GE count is tracking the
long-term average and almost at the long-term average for Hawk Mt.

However, for Franklin Mt, NY, and Allegheny Front, this year's count is way
behind the long-term average. If we had many years of data for Bald Eagle
Mt, I believe that we would see the same pattern.

I think that the difference is between those sites that typically benefit
by eagles drifting on moderate winds vs. those sites that typically benefit
by blasts of strong cold fronts. Some of this cold front description may
apply to what has happened to the north of us, where the late eagles are
hanging out.

I don't believe that it is an equal-sum game - that Wag Gap-Hawk Mt-Stone
Mt gain matches the Franklin-Bald Eagle-All Fr loss. It is just that
conditions have given one set of sites their average, while leaving the
other set of sites with fewer than expected. In 2019, it was the opposite
case for Wag Gap-Hawk Mt vs. Bald Eagle. I had been hoping more for a
typical year, as we aren't able to do the Bald Eagle Mt count often, but it
all provides learning.

In some years, especially 2018, the winds benefit all (except All Front,
but that site is an outlier because it is so highly dependent upon E/SE
winds). Franklin Mt is also a bit of an odd case for a similar reason -
chance plays a large role in their counts.

Subject: Tussey Mtn (23 Nov 21)
Hello from Tussey Mountain!
The WNW winds brought me 9 BAEAs, 3 GOEAs, 30 RTHAS, 1 COHA, and 1 SSHA
today. The count ended with a stunning sunset and a visit from Peter the
juvenile raven who is getting very comfortable with close flybys and is
constantly showing off his (or her) aerial tricks.
The forecast isn't promising tomorrow due to light SW winds, so me and Des
will both be resting our hawk-filled brains.

Happy birding!

assigned (or in the process of being assigned to volunteers. Nash Turley
and Brian Schilling, I will contact each of you with details for the routes
you will cover).

Since *COVID-19 *is still a health threat, I am not open to walk-ins this
year. For those who are assigned a count route, use your own common sense
on proceeding.

Subject: Tussey Mtn (20 Nov 21)
Greetings from the mountain!
Today I learned that cocooning into my sleeping bag works very well to keep
warm in 52 km/h winds... though the hikers and hunters thought I looked
silly. The strong SSE/S headwinds were not conducive to migration, so I
only saw 2 TUVUs migrating in the S valley this morning. There were a few
locals including TUVUs, a COHA, and one BAEA Ad.
Tomorrow the winds will be light and southerly and there will be a chance
of rain in the afternoon, so migrants are not expected.

Happy birding!

Subject: Re: m19 Why Warthog Flights over PA WILDS Must be Stopped
This is a good one: I agree. Warthogs “bomb” Howard and the dam regularly:
4 in succession 2 weeks ago. A C-130 ( 4 engine prop transport) buzzed the
Rte 26 causeway bridge at Howard last weekend as I was driving across the
bridge. At about 200-300 ft above the bridge it was a little too impressive.

We’ve even had a Chinook Helicopter practicing refueling from a tanker
aircraft over Howard (several years ago).

Why Warthog Flights over PA WILDS Must be Stopped

We hunt, fish, hike, paddle, bike, watch Elk, birds & other wildlife and enjoy nature at its best in the PA WILDS. We seek solitude, not aircraft strafing at tree-top level.



While we support our military, the PA Wilds is not the appropriate place to conduct extremely low-level training in airplanes. Our voices must be heard before the public comment period closes on December 15.

The PA WILDS is a $1.8 billion industry that makes up 11 percent of the region’s economy. DCNR, alone, has invested over $180 million in the region since 2003.

The PA WILDS is promoted as an unspoiled destination for those seeking nature-based tourism. It cannot become a training ground for aircraft strafing runs.

Please use only 3 or 4 of the ten comments below, along with your own thoughts. Your comments should be clear, valid and NOT just a copy & paste of everything. That would be viewed as a form letter and disregarded.



Prior to any final decisions on these extremely low-level training flights over PA WILDS, the Maryland Air National Guard must hold Public Meetings in the counties which will be affected by the flights. These meetings must be held at times and places which encourage wide participation. Meeting must be well-advertised, including efforts to include the Plain Sect communites residing within this region.

By law, all Federal agencies must protect the environment by carefully weighing environmental considerations and considering potential alternatives to the proposed action before launching any major federal action.

The National Guard is required to prepare a detailed Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). It must be complete, comprehensive and must be published for all those affected may view it.

The EIS must include any adverse effects and alternatives to the proposed action. In short, the National Guard must clearly justify all Federal actions which affect the quality of our environment

The National Guard’s very premature statement of FONSI ( Finding Of No Significant Impact ). Demonstrates bad faith. The National Guard must conduct a full Environmental Impact Study and then host public meetings in each of the impacted counties (Cameron, Clinton, Elk, McKean and Potter).

The National Guard has not considered a simple, safe and reasonable alternative: Set up courses for training at their airports with Red Bull aircraft race pylons to safely practice maneuvers.

Previous training flights by the NY National Guard in Pennsylvania were at tree-top level and had resulted in extremely dangerous situations.

DCNR reports detailed several incidents during previous A-10 (Warthog) flights by the NY National Guard which raised serious safety concerns during training flights over the PA Wilds area.
[ ] While using an air tanker on a wildfire, our plane was flying in a generally easterly direction from the Moshannon Air tanker base, approaching the side hill fire header. Airspace was closed to all other traffic, but a Warthog was flying low just above the west branch of Susquehanna River.

[ ] While BOF crews were planting tree seedlings by using mechanized tree planters pulled by small dozers, National Guard Warthogs would practice strafing by using the active tree planter as targets. This was totally unsafe and frightening.

Hello All, A Cattle Egret is at Fairbrook marsh (12:33). I’m parked off
Whitehall Rd at the army truck, a food from the Methodist Church. The bird
stays along the grassy banks of the stream.

Hi All,

Good to see folks at tonight’s meeting and I enjoyed Charles’ images from South Florida!

Shaver’s Creek is hosting a bird feeding basics program this Saturday, November 20, from 9 to 10:30 am and more information can be found at this link<https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.shaverscreek.org%2Fpublic-programs-and-events%2Fbird-feeding-basics%2F&data=04%7C01%<7Cscbirdcl...>%7Cccd2df3e10f44488b4d008d9aa357896%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C637727968887597121%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=fDrpATRwQoopqi0wJK4NF%2BJlhkMTiIb%2BlCz1BQ%2BVwPE%3D&reserved=0>.

We are also accepting field guide donations for the Alice Fuller gently used nature books if you are paring down your collection—proceeds go to the Tussey Mountain Spring Hawkwatch. And if you are looking to pick up a few State College Bird Club decals or window clings, you can find them at the welcome desk, as well as Lenca Farms / Standing Stone bird friendly coffee.

All the best,
Doug

Greetings from the mountain!
It was a fairly raptor-less day with migrants and locals only seen between
11am and 2pm.
The weather looks bleak tomorrow, but the forecast looks more promising on
Friday.

Happy birding!

Subject: Bald Eagle Mtn (16 Nov 2021)
Greetings from the mountain!
In contrast to yesterday, we had sunny skies and fairly light W winds. Two
BAEAs and three GOEAs moved through along with a few TUVUs, RTHAs, and
SSHAs. Though the day was fairly slow, we had a few decent flocks

Subject: Stone Mt. Raptor photos, 11/15
We had some decent raptor movement with yesterday's cold, blustery west
winds at the Stone Mountain Hawkwatch. The highlight was a "late" Peregrine
Falcon. but I was also excited to finally see my first Golden Eagles of the
fall. We also had an interesting adult Bald Eagle hanging its feet while
flying. You can see some snow flurries on the silhouettes of the peregrine.

Thanks to my expert fellow hawkwatchers, Dave and Trudy Kyler, for pointing
out the birds!

Subject: Re: Unidentified waterfowl at Colyer Lake this AM
People dump domestics all the time and its awful. They often don't live
through the winter or get predated or get hit by cars. It's illegal to
dump domestics, immoral, inhumane and infuriating for those of who care
about the welfare of these animals. We have gotten several domestic ducks
over the years, because they were dumped and ended up injured. BTW, we
only take domestic ducks if they are injured, are not owned by anyone "and"
we have room.

I wish people would stop dumping domestic anything that will have trouble
surviving in the wild. It hurts my heart to see that. All people need
to do is go on FB to some of the duck/chicken/home steading/whatever pages
and you can find someone who will take
ducks/chickens/geese/rabbits/whatever. And there are also rescues that
will help if you just look. Stepping down from my soap box now...

Larry,

To me, the duck on the left looks mostly like a Swan Goose, which I think is commonly kept in captivity in both in Canada and the US. It is native to eastern Asia.

Best wishes,

Hi all,

I had an adult golden eagle flapping like crazy flying due south through the snow and rain at 1:00 today just at Carson’s Corner. I don’t think it was a happy camper, but it was still moving on, but not on the ridge where things were even worse for flying.

Subject: Field Trip to Bald Eagle State Park 11/14/21
Hello All,

Nine winter-hearty birders had a grand good time on a field trip to Bald
Eagle State Park this morning, braving the 39-degree temperature and a
gusting, chilling wind.

We birded at the Swimming Beach, along the main park road, The Sunken Road
Overlook, from the top of Sayers Dam and had a bracing walk to Hunters Cove
and the spillway marsh.

We had looks at Buffleheads, Ruddy Ducks, Common Mergansers, 2 Pied-billed
Grebes, several Double-crested Cormorants and a female Wigeon at several
locations around the lake. We also saw 2 Ring-billed Gulls and a
Bonaparte’s Gull at the dam.

White-throated Sparrows were singing in the shrubby growth at the bottom of
the hill at the Nature Inn and a couple Northern Flickers and Downy
Woodpeckers were active in the same area.

Two Red-tailed Hawks, 2 Bald Eagles (an adult and an immature) and a
Cooper’s Hawk were observed. A Northern Mockingbird streaked across the
park road as our caravan approached the parking lot for the Frog Pond.

We did not find any Northern Shrike, Snow Buntings or American Pipits (none
have been seen in the area so far, but are anticipated). So those quests
still are unfulfilled!

Everyone enjoyed the walk from the war memorial parking area at the dam to
the spillway marsh. In my opinion, our best bird of the morning was a
reddish-plumaged Fox Sparrow as we approached the spillway marsh. It was
in the shrubs along the west side of the path and gave us fair looks and it
was silent. I will send out my ‘lucky 🍀 shot’ photo of the Fox Sparrow
either tonight or tomorrow.

It was a fine field trip to our local bird haven, Bald Eagle SP.

Bob Snyder

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!

Subject: Bald Eagle Mt, Friday
Golden Eagles continue to trickle through. Continued to see several over
the Allegheny Front and its foothills, as on Mon-Tues with W wind and
sunshine.

The young Golden Eagle that passed the South Lookout late on Thursday was
trapped and banded by Karl's banding crew, then released. Soon after I saw
that bird above the point opposite the South Lookout, it dropped quickly
into the forest with its feet extended down. Karl reported the same
behavior over the trap lure.

From: Nick Bolgiano <nickbolgiano...>
Subject: Golden Eagle update
Eagles have been drifting south in moderate numbers without any front to
concentrate them. Franklin Mt, NY, has recorded very few eagles this
season, as that site requires fronts to concentrate. Sites that "collect"
eagles - Waggoner's Gap, Allegheny Front, Bald Eagle Mt, Stone Mt, have
counted the most.

This drifting pattern should change today through Tuesday. Sites favored by
SE winds should get a good push today. Sites favored by W winds should get
a good push with the cold fronts that come through on Saturday and Monday.

It is hard to predict the best days for the W wind sites.

The count circle maps include a static approximate circle, and a more precise circle that can be displayed with Google Earth and viewed at any zoom level.

This is the second CBC we have had to deal with the Coronavirus pandemic. If you participate and are considering going with one or more persons in the same vehicle, you should carefully consider how much risk is involved.

Have a good CBC and stay safe!

Only 1 migrating MERL today and not many local raptors. Tomorrow the winds
will be light SE in the morning, then picking up slightly and shifting SSE

Dear Bird Club,

Bob Snyder will be leading a field trip this Sunday.
Happy birding!
Susan Smith

*Sunday, November 14, 2021 8:00- 11:00 am*
*Winter Birds at Bald Eagle State Park*

We will be checking various locations within the main park for winter birds
such as sparrows, hawks and waterfowl. Some of the land birds we would
like to find would include Snow Buntings, American Pipit, perhaps a
Northern Harrier and Northern Shrike. The global climate is changing and
warmer weather tends to linger longer at Bald Eagle SP, so it will be
'anything goes' for this year's outing. We will meet at the Swimming
Beach, then drive to various locations around the park. We will probably do
some walking to the Skater's Pond and/or to the Hunter's Run Cove launch so
sturdy boots are recommended. Come prepared for the weather. All are
welcome. Bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one.
Photographers welcome.

Trip Leader: Bob Snyder

Greetings from the mountain!
No migrants to report today, and considering the northern watchsites are
also having low numbers, I expect the total to stay low again tomorrow.

Happy birding!

Observers: Phil Kress

Weather:
Cloudless and hazy, especially in S valley, but mostly cleared by the
afternoon. NW/WNW winds 14kph in the morning dying down to a low of 6kph in
the afternoon.

Raptor Observations:
No migrants today. Local TUVUs didn't pick up until the afternoon. Two very
distant BAEAs moved SW parallel to the ridge midday, but were seen
returning along the same path an hour later.

Minimum # local:
7 TUVU
2 RTHA
2 BAEA (unknown age)

Non-raptor Observations:
Large flock of about 100 starlings hung out on top of the tower for awhile
and a bluebird also kept me company on a wire.

Predictions:
Clear skies, light W/WSW winds, and relatively warm weather similar to
today. Considering the northern watchsites have also had low numbers
lately, I don't expect a large migration movement. May start late since the
birds have been especially slacking in the mornings.

Greetings from Tussey!
Not much raptor or non-raptor activity to report today due to the lack of
wind, but the juvenile raven flock has reappeared! I love seeing them do
tricks and play games with each other in the sky. One RTHA passed through
their group on its way along the ridge and some great antics ensued.
Winds are predicted to be a little better tomorrow and it looks like we're
going to have some nice warm, sunny weather for the next few days.

Happy birding!

We were blessed with an adult (my first ever good view of an adult and lifer for several others including Deb Rittelmann who took these pics) at Waggoner's Gap today at the tail end of the PSO trip Chad Kauffman organized. I think Ian brought us good luck with his shirt.

I can attest that seeing a goshawk at Tussey Mt is a religious experience. Just before 11, I sat down to put on my wind pants. While doing this, I looked up and a ginormous accipiter was rocketing just above the 3-foot knoll 50 feet in front of me. It flew 20 feet above my head and I saw every dark feather streak from throat to undertail coverts. When I become ancient and sitting in my rocking chair, I hope that this memory recurs in my mind frequently. I suspect that it flew down the Mid State Trail and burst into the powerline, which Jon K and I previously witnessed years ago.

I found what appeared to be a Marsh Wren, missing tail feathers at the
small spillway marsh on Sayers Dam, Bald Eagle SP, 11/6/21. The bird
stayed within the cattails, making observation difficult. Other photos that
I checked last night, did not show a tail, so it must be under going a tail
molt?

Good morning,
The end of daylight savings time heralded the first arrival of a junco at my feeder this morning. Looking at some of my bird records from earlier this year, the juncos will be almost daily visitors at my feeders into April.

Put up a Feeder. Count Birds. Enter your numbers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. It's a great way to enjoy birds in the winter.
We are starting our 32nd year and have had 56 different species. Two of the most surprising were a Northern Shrike and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet that visited in the winter of 1994-1995 when temps dipped towards -20. It would almost take food from Greg's hand when he went out to fill the feeder.

Never be bored, and you will never be boring. Eleanor Roosevelt,

Ecclesiates 5:18 This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them.

I can attest that seeing a goshawk at Tussey Mt is a religious experience.
Just before 11, I sat down to put on my wind pants. While doing this, I
looked up and a ginormous accipiter was rocketing just above the 3-foot
knoll 50 feet in front of me. It flew 20 feet above my head and I saw every
dark feather streak from throat to undertail coverts. When I become ancient
and sitting in my rocking chair, I hope that this memory recurs in my mind
frequently. I suspect that it flew down the Mid State Trail and burst into
the powerline, which Jon K and I previously witnessed years ago.

Greetings from the mountain,
It was an amazing day at the watch! I finally have all 16 PA daytime raptors on my lifelist with the RLHA that flew directly overhead this afternoon. I definitely shed a few tears of joy. This was also the first RLHA recorded in Bald Eagle Mtn's data and the first of the season for our local watches.
Tomorrow winds are expected to be basically nonexistent first thing in the morning, so both Tussey and Bald Eagle Mtn might have a slightly later start than normal. Once the winds pick up, they will be W/WSW so the count will be at the north lookout.

Happy birding!

Subject: Golden Eagles counts at western corridor sites
I'm keeping track of when Golden Eagles appear at sites along the western
migration corridor through PA.

3 Outer sites: Franklin Mt, NY, Bald Eagle Mt, Allegheny Front, both 2019
and 2021
3 Inner sites: Tussey, Stone, Jacks

So far, Franklin Mt hasn't predicted much for us. When that site gets a
good GE flight, one is sure to follow here.

Greetings from the mountain,
We had our first snow/rain mix this afternoon, a great reminder that we are
halfway done the season and moving into the colder months! Migration was
slower than yesterday, but hopefully the winds will shift north a little
tomorrow and give us more birds.

Happy birding!

Subject: an eagle ID that wasn't straight-forward
Attached is a picture of a young bald eagle, I think 3 years old, that we
saw at the Bald Eagle Mt HW Monday. Until it came overhead, we
couldn't tell if it was a bald or a golden eagle. Its height and the strong
wind made the ID challenging..

It has a light-colored head, a white tail except for a dark band, and white
wingpits. A 3-year old bald don't usually retain the white wingpits that
they acquire in their first year. What first seemed as if it could be a
golden eagle turned into a bald eagle. A young golden eagle would have
white in the middle of its wings and the white on the tail would be
restricted to the inner half.

Greetings from the mountain!
It was a long day of hawk watching today since the W/NW winds were blowing
the birds in all directions. The winds are predicted to be similar (W)
tomorrow with more partly cloudy skies. Excited for the GOEAs to keep on
flying by!

Happy birding!

Weather:
Cloudless skies the first hour turning into partly cloudy the rest of the
day. W/WNW winds 9-19 kph

Raptor Observations:
Difficult day to keep track of the migrants/nonmigrants because of wind
direction blowing them all over the place.
Notable non-migrating GOEA Imm came high off Allegheny plateau and dropped
down heading south towards the end of the day.

Non-raptor Observations:
A lot of small passerines, especially in the morning. I believe many were
finches, but I couldn't get species-specific IDs because of lighting and
focus on the raptors. Large flock of ~60 geese and 2 loons as well as the
usual songirds.

From: Rob Dickerson <radickerson...>
Subject: Summer Request for Photos
Do you have some great photos of any birds taken in Pennsylvania from June 1, 2021 - July 31, 2021? Or a picture of a notable/significant sighting from that period?

I am currently accepting photo submissions through end of day November 14 to be considered for publication as space permits in the Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology (PSO) Summer 2021 issue of Pennsylvania Birds.

**Important Note** Images submitted must be high-res and are preferred to be horizontal shots. Submitted images must be able to be cropped to 1050px x 700px with a resolution of 300 px/in for horizontal images. If space allows high-quality vertical portrait shots may be used, but they take up the space of 2 photos in the layout used by the journal. Vertical photos submitted must be able to be cropped to 1050px x 1313px at 300 px/in.

Some further instructions... If your submission does not follow the instructions below or contain the info requested below, it will not be processed!

- Submissions for consideration **must** be taken during the above date range and emailed to <radickerson...>, please make mention of the word SUMMER in the subject line to simplify processing.

- Please do not submit me dozens of images for consideration, please do some initial limiting/judging of selections on your end that reflect the best of your work. However, if you have 15 different images of truly notable sightings in the state from this period, I'll gladly accept them for consideration!

- VERY important!!! For each image attached to the e-mail, you must include a description in the body of the e-mail for that image. Best format to follow: Species Name - Location, County, DD Month. Sentence about significance if known/applicable. (Photographer Name) Example: Antillean Nighthawk - Presque Isle SP, Erie, 12 June. This bird represented a first state record and was observed through 1 July. (John Doe)

- Please also submit your photos for consideration in full resolution or as close to full resolution as possible as these will be printed. Your photo also may be considered for a cover shot and a 250KB image just won't work for that! I need to be able to crop your photo to fit the space as it permits in the journal and a precropped / low-resolution image is problematic for that. It's safe to say that if you're sending me an image under a megabyte in size, it isn't going to be the resolution I need to work with. I also need room to crop the image to the specs used for the newsletter (exact specs posted above) and an extremely tight crop may not allow me to do that.

- Photos selected for printing in the issue will be credited to the photographer, please DO NOT submit watermarked/signatured images or they will not be considered. The image should be clean of any add-ons.

Thanks for considering submitting your photos for consideration for our statewide ornithology journal!

Regards,

Rob Dickerson

Greetings from the mountain!
The birds played some tricks with weird silhouettes and flight patterns due
to the heavy winds, but the mountain provided a lot of treats with
beautiful foliage, an afternoon rainbow, and some particularly good looks
at GOEAs and a RSHA.
Winds tomorrow are predicted to be WNW and the skies will be partly cloudy.
Des will be back on Tussey and I will be covering Bald Eagle.

Happy Halloween!

Observers:

Weather:
Rain and fog delayed start. Cloud cover remained low and at 100% until the
last hour. Fog and periodic showers kept moving through for most of the
count, though the birds kept migrating fairly consistently despite the
precipitation. W/WNW winds 10-31 kph

Raptor Observations:
Better migration than expected despite the rain. Heavy W winds caused birds
to fly with wrists pushed forward and could sometimes cause unsteady
flight. This made it difficult to identify two eagles early in the day and
required extra careful looks overall.

Non-raptor Observations:
Not much activity, especially after the first two hours. There were more
crows than I usually see (up to 10 at once). I've usually only been seeing
the usual adult raven pair plus one other occasional raven, so I believe
the juvenile flock may have moved out of the area.
