Conditions do not look very good for the coming days. I will be present sporadically, please watch the winds for the next best day. So far as the current report goes there will be very little moving through the weekend. I will try to give a heads up for the next big day. Redtails and still many vultures are to come, Red-shoulders too plus Golden Eagles and Roughlegs.
We saw our first Eastern Bluebirds migrate through today, some Pine Siskins, thousands of Red-winged Blackbirds and thousands of American Robins. Down on the lake we saw 4 Long-tailed Ducks, several Red-breasted Mergansers and a few small rafts of Common Loons.
A special Happy Birthday to Phil.
