2 Lows combined to form a classic 'nor easter. But instead of 100% rain for 100% of the day, we got very little, and that weather is way off to our Northeast.  Lighthouse will be hopping tomorrow.

With westerlies howling and very dense cloud cover zipping by, we managed to
count 25 migrating raptors today.  Also one Loon sp. flew over, and a small
group of Canada Geese with one SNOW GOOSE among them.

Keeping us entertained for a couple of hours was an American Kestrel,
hunting insects in the grass from his perch on the #12 pole in front of the
watch.  Whatever he was eating only took one or two bites to down.  Pretty
small pickings.

Tomorrow promises a good flight.  If you come, wear your longjohns!

Oh, if you're a bird, be an early bird
And catch the worm for your breakfast plate.
If you're a bird, be an early early bird--
But if you're a worm, sleep late.                   *Early Bird* by Shel
