Observation start time: 09:00:00 
Observation end   time: 14:00:00 
Total observation time: 5 hours

Site Coordinator: Calvin Brennan

Observers:        Terry Angevine

Weather:
Sunny skies early in the day gave way to increasing clouds and complete
overcast by early afternoon. Winds were moderate west-northwest. 



Observations:
Although not as large as yesterdays movement, todays flight was still
substantial. Strangely perhaps was the absence of Rough-legs in the totals
given the number seen the previous day. A total of 115 birds of 8 species
were recorded.
