Sept.11 Day Count 25 YTD 386

Today was about what I expected,with winds that went southeast early in the day. We had some wonderfully low birds,including Turkey Vultures,one of 2 Merlins,both Osprey and a Redtail that landed in the park. The Redtail also put on a display of kiting into the wind. Todays total was 25,consisting of :

5-Turkey Vultures
2-Osprey
1-Northern Harrier
9-Sharpshinned Hawks
1-Redtailed Hawks
5-American Kestrels
2-Merlins

The weekend looks terrible,counts are unlikely. Both Monday and Tuesday currently look excellent for large movements of raptors and small birds too for that matter.
