Official Counter: Calvin Brennan

Observers:        

Weather:
Rain and thundershowers prevailed during the morning hours today with
overcast conditions dominating the afternoon. Winds were light to moderate
from the south.

 



Raptor Observations:
There was a period of very active migration during the afternoon once the
showers had moved off to the east. Most of the birds recorded were
Sharp-shins but the 4 Merlins seen provided a nice highlight to today’s
limited coverage.

Non-raptor Observations:
