Team Notes

Participants: Katrina Fenton, Mike Gebo, Andre Moreas, Nancy Moreau, Henry Walters, Wendy Ward

Weather: Overcast with rain and fog morning until early afternoon. Partly cloudy with North wind and temperatures in the 40s later on.

Location: Pack Monadnock Raptor Migration Observatory

Time At Location: 8:00a.m.- 6:00p.m.

Notes:
Not much activity until the weather improved later in the day. Moral was high with an enthusiastic team, and an "average" day list for the site was compiled, despite the less than stellar conditions.

Anecdotes:
Best corruption of a raptor name of the day "Super-shined Hawk" from a father reading the list of the day's migrants to his son.
