187 Raptors.
Better day than I expected, especially after almost nothing for  the first 
3 hours.  Wind started light NE with 100% clouds, but just before  10 we 
could see the line of clearing moving towards us and the wind shifted a  little 
and strengthened. Within minutes we had birds. Pretty even distribution  of 
species, only thing lacking a little was the # of BE, after Sun. and  
yesterday. 
 
Of note:
28 OSPREY    
47 SHARP-SHINNED HAWKS
42 COOPERS HAWKS
19 BROAD-WINGED HAWKS
13 AMERICAN KESTRELS
7 PEREGRINE FALCONS
3 BALD EAGLES
