Official Counter: Calvin Brennan

Observers:        Jim Maki, Terry Angevine, Walt Pawloski

Weather:
Today was sunny and cloudless for the most part with the visibility reduced
somewhat in haze. The winds were light to moderate and predominately from
the south-southeast. 



Raptor Observations:
This was one of the slowest days since the early fall perhaps a bit
surprising given the recent frontal system that brought rain and after
yesterday’s overcast conditions. 


Non-raptor Observations:
