    The migration is picking up a little, Joyce Holt kept the count today and 
reports 95 individuals. Sharpies continue to be the most common migrant with 
58 tallied and Redtail numbers are starting to increase with 24 counted. Joyce 
relates that most birds were easily seen with the flight path close to the 
ridge. Thanks to Katie James, Dillard Childress, Andy Biggs, Baron Gibson and 
John Williamson for all of their help.
