Hi Bill,

I enjoyed looking for OS  this afternoon so I stayed until they seemed to drop off. Many flew directly along the shoreline in pairs. Woody stayed one more hour and left at 1:00 pm. No other visitors. 1 RS out front, but did not appear to migrate. The Killdeer, Kingfisher and Red-bellied Woodpecker were still in the park when I left, plus a ML in the merlin tree that I did not count. I did not adjust the time to Standard Time below.

12:00-1:00 Wind NE, Speed 0-1, NH 1, OS 1, SS 2, (occasional light drizzle with 1 solo White Dove that flew into the park, landed in a park tree out back, and later continued on westward)
1:00-2:00 Wind NE, Speed 0-1, AK 4, ML 1, NH 2, OS 4, SS 1,  (occasional light drizzle with 75 tree swallows and 4 Chimney Swift)
2:00-3:00 Wind N, Speed 0-1, AK 1, OS 14, UA 1, (occasional light drizzle)
3:00-4:00 Wind N, Speed 0, AK 1, OS 3, NH 2, (no rain, higher cloud ceiling)
4:00-5:00 Wind N, Speed 1, AK 2, ML 1, NH 1, OS 8, (no rain, higher cloud ceiling)
5:00-5:30 Wind N, Speed 0-1, AK 1, ML 1, OS 2,  (no rain, higher cloud ceiling with 7 Cedar Waxwing and 1 Nighthawk)
