Today was reasonable, given the wind strength. As I had said in the previous post, the winds werent very strong, so its very likely many birds were north of us. Blue skies early in the day made spotting difficult too. While some birds were high a good assortment were very low. Most of the photogenic birds were local birds. Paul Reeves has sent along a local juvenile Coopers Hawk in a tree just behind us.
In the end we saw a total of 74 birds:
Thanks to Paul, Betty, Lee, Carol, John, Arvo, Terry 2, oh ya :-) Berle and Phil for giving Walter and I a hand today.
Winds are light Saturday, but are from a decent direction. Sundays predicted winds are from the NE 15, which will likely mean a good number of birds but most will probably be high. Monday with predicted winds from the west at a reasonsonable clip, may be NW in the end and bring another big Oct 1. Thursday Oct 4 has the most potential if nothing changes. Keep your eyes on the weather if you want to give yourself the best chances of seeing the most birds. I offer this information, knowing full well its subject to change up to even the hours before you are leaving your homes.
