Temperature 67-91 degrees, hazy conditions, visibility 3-5 miles, 60% cloud cover, Wind from the NW @ 3-5 with occasional gusts to 10 MPH. A 3pm (DST) rain shower shut down the watch.
An interesting mix, migrants late morning passing the site that looked promising but the flight shut down at about 1pm (DST). Immature Bald eagles @ 10:40, 10:45, 12:00 and 1:00pm all times DST. Two Red shouldered hawks were spotted but not counted as we are aware of a nesting pair in the area. Two RT’s juvenile RT’s spotted at very high altitude heading south.
Very little song bird activity.
