Other Birds:
Purple Finch - observed landing in the park twice today!

Butterflies:
Cabbage White - 3 (possibly a 4th)

a late Celery Looper moth (Walter)

Hawkwatchers:
Bill, Hugh, Rosemary, Terry, Carol, Betty, Bonnie, and one or two others.....sorry, I wasn't paying much attention today.

Weather Prediction:
Nov 17th - sunny switching to mainly sunny (isn't that the same as partly cloudy?) in the afternoon, E 30 km/h and gusting to 50km/h  (theweathernetwork.com)
