With the end of a front passing through and diminishing North  winds the 
total was 214 with 76 Osprey.  Had a kettle of 12 at one time  with Broad 
Wings mixed in. Birds were very high by 9 AM, making spotting  difficult before 
the clouds came in around 11. 16 Bald Eagles, coming over in  small groups, 
2-4 at a time. Birds going due east -west for the most part, but  all over 
the sky. 43 Sharp-shinned hawks,  25 Broad-wings, 7 Northern  Harriers, 17 
Coopers Hawks, 15 Am Kestrels.
3 Black Vultures hanging around the area all morning,  separate from the 
several TVs. When the wind changed to S it was like someone  dropped the 
curtain, except for 1 final Northern Harrier just before I  left at 2:30.
