Weather:
Conditions were typical of early September today with very warm, sunny
conditions prevailing throughout the day. Light and variable winds early in
the day gave way to light southeast winds by mid morning.




Raptor Observations:


Non-raptor Observations:
The usual number of early season non-raptor migrants were in evidence
today, particularly Purple Martin and Northern Rough-winged Swallow.
Bobolinks were numerous in the early morning hours. Monarchs and
hummingbirds were perhaps a bit less numerous than they are typically in
early September. A probable Lark Sparrow was heard and seen as a fly-over.
