As 8 of us awaited Nov.3's sunny skies turn to snow-bearing overcast over a
4-hour vigil we had to be satisfied with few hawks, great camaraderie, 1
Wilson's Snipe, 1 Rusty Blackbird and a treetop NORTHERN SHRIKE.  With the
"promise" that after I leave an eagle would come through, sure enough an
adult GOLDEN EAGLE came through at 1130am.

Observations made by 8 observers over 4 hours on Nov.3
Counter--Ron Stephenson, Doug Lockrey
Observers--Rosemary Harris, Jim Skeine, Dave Worthington, Charlie Adey (he
who is off to Vegas soon!!), Dan Russell, Karl Jennewein and others.
