Official Counter: Calvin Brennan

Observers:        Fred Kirn, Jim Maki

Visitors:
Walt Pawloski


Weather:
The warm hazy rather early September-like weather continued for another
day. The winds were light to moderate from the southeast. 

Raptor Observations:
The overall breakdown of the flight today was very similar to yesterday but
with slightly more diversity. Once again the Peregrines recorded
highlighted the day. 





Non-raptor Observations:
I think it is noteworthy that as yesterday there was a light yet steady
passage of Monarchs.
