Hi all:
Today's count might have been good, were it not for the mid-day storm that 
caused a one-hour rain delay.  As it was, Mississippi Kites crossed East Bay 
into a light S breeze in what is good numbers for so late in their season:  I 
tallied 133 (all juvs).  Two Peregrines also had no qualms with the wind or 
Bay, but most other raptors stayed where they were.

Both waterbird and landbird migrants were no-shows, as I scored a White Ibis 
goose-egg for the first time this season.

If the current forecast holds for the weekend, ooh la la!  I hope to catch up 
on the blog tomorrow, after not posting for a while due to the ID workshop this 
past weekend and Internet outage at the Smith Point restaurant today.

Enjoy,

Tony
