Beamer was pretty slow today despite what appeared to be spectacular
weather, unless of course, you're a migrating hawk.  Sadly, clear sunny
skies coupled with rising barometric pressure does not make for a good hawk

Despite this, we did see 143 individuals including:
45 turkey vultures
1 osprey
5 northern harriers
23 sharp-shinned hawks
2 cooper's hawks
20 broad-winged hawks
47 red tailed hawks

Additionally, we saw:
11 common loons
7 bluebirds
1 pine siskin
1 wild turkey
1 fox sparrow
3 rough-winged swallows
2 barn swallows
several purple finches

All this and some great conversation made for a great day outdoors.
