Friday, Aug.28/09
Observation  time: 0730-1100, 1200-1300 EST
Official Counter:     Doug Lockrey
Observers:  Jim Munroe, Jim Skene,  Ron Stephenson, King Baker, Charlie 
Adey, Joyce Collier-Brown, John Stirrat, Herb Parke, Gunnar Bessel

The weather---TUV=1.5, 18C, medium E winds, falling bp

Prior to 0900EDT 4 Ospreys came through. Then the day clouded over, and 
given the poor weather conditions few raptors xame through. I returned at 
1200EDT--5 more flew low over the wetland, including a juvenile BALD EAGLE 
at 1220EDT.

Non-raptor Observations: many r-t Hummingbirds, warbling vireo, Wilson's 
warbler, black-throated Green warbler, marsh wren, American redstart, yellow 
warbler.

the lake to the second roadside parking area. From the 401 westbound--exit 
at Brock St. in Whitby, south to Victoria St., west right through to Hall's 
Rd.
