Notes:
Counted 32 species by 10:01am. Last three were after 5:50pm.

First time count was done on Saturday. Was not able to watch during most of the afternoon so likely missed any vultures and other raptors that may have been soaring. The total of 35 species was second highest total recorded at this site since starting in 2003.
