Weather:
Today’s conditions were very much similar to yesterday with clear sunny
skies prevailing. The biggest difference was the wind direction, which was
west-southwest in the morning but swinging around to the southeast by noon.
 



Raptor Observations:
What started out as a very good flight petered out in the early afternoon
with the wind shift.
