With light SE wind we were in no real hurry to get to the park today.  Actually we didn't start the Watch until 10:30AM and we were gone from the park by early afternoon around 1:30PM.  It just wasn't happening today.

 Nice day for para-gliding! (Walter)

One non-raptor highlight today was a flyover by a Pileated Woodpecker.

My thanks to Terry, Betty, Arvo, Manny, and Lee.

Tomorrow may see a few drops of rain in the afternoon.  Then, rain at night.  Keep an eye on Thursday.  At present the forecast is for NW 25km/h wind.
