Team Notes

Participants: Alex Lamoreaux, Ian Gardner

Weather: Thick fog and light rain

Location: Allegheny Front Hawk Watch

Time At Location: 15hrs

Anecdotes:
Owl banding was shut down by midnight due to heavy fog, high wind speeds, and light rain. The poor weather conditions continued throughout the day and we eventually decided to give up on the Big Sit, with a new low count for our sit - 24 species. eBird checklist: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S15396260
