On the non-raptor scene, two Great Blue Heron sightings were the highlight.  Blue Jays continued to move through today with another 2000 on the go.

Another 49 migrating Monarch butterflies were tallied today.

Cicada/Harvestfly/or Heatbug if you prefer! (Kris)

On hand today were - Kris, Tim, Terry 1, Berle, Betty, and Nancy from Murray's Meetup group.  Thankyou for your help finding the birds in all that blue sky today!

Very light NW wind is predicted for tomorrow.
