Observation start time: 08:30:00 
Observation end   time: 10:30:00 
Total observation time: 2 hours

Site Coordinator: Brenda Tekin

Observers:        Brenda Tekin, Pat Alther

Weather:
Light winds out of NNW changing to variable before shifting to out of the
east.
Temp: (High) 18.5c
Humidity:  65 dropping to 60%
Overcast
By 10:18 wind shifting to out of east brought in more fog up the eastern
slope and completely socking in the NE section and tops of trees on north
side of gap.

This weather pattern continues to dampen our hawk watching efforts on top
of lack of volunteer counters this season.

Observations:


Eastern Bluebird (2)
Rusty Blackbird (2)
American Robin - several small bands crossing the gap
First resident vulture made appearance at 9:33 a.m.
