If it were not for 12 wonderful would-be counters, 2 Green Herons doing
several flypasts and a wonderful Chilean cyclist, Vivian, who decided that
an excellent preparation for her start day at Ryerson tomorrow would be to
visit us (indeed she knew her birds), the morning hours at Cranberry would
have been a struggle. I even had time to mock an Hawaian hula dance for
everyone!!

Oh yes, the raptors---  Migrants:1 low-flying OS, 3 Sharpies. TOTAL migrants
Aug.21-Sep.1(noonhour)= 200

Non-migrants-- 2 OS, 3 AK, 3 NH

On the wetlands--- calling-- SORA, COOT,VIRGINIA RAIL
Not as many Monarchs as yesterday.
Many Chimney Swifts, Swallows
Am. Redstart
