We also had a 'Herc' from Trenton fly by...
 
 
Eight more Monarch butterflies were counted today.  The dragonflies polluted the sky for the third day in a row.  I don't think I've ever seen so many before.
 
Hawk watchers today included: Carol, Betty, Berle, Phil, Ron, and Peter.
 
As mentioned above, tomorrow should be another fantastic day with predicted morning N 20 km/h and afternoon NW 25 km/h winds with gusts up to 40 km/h.
 
It's also Pizza Day tomorrow!  Time: 12:30 PM.
 
Hope to see everyone out!
