  7. Number observed: 2
  8. Number observed: 3

    Comments: A very large solo bird slightly higher than us (1000-1100') from the NNW, then one with prey being chase by a second - came in from the NNW as well at maybe 1400' but stooping down above the hillside below us with the second one harassing the first and causing it to drop it's prey (likely a VATH?), quite the dogfight with birds flying upside down at a couple of points! Really cool to see.

  13. Number observed: 1
  14. Number observed: 2
  15. Number observed: 1165

    Comments: Estimated by fives as they streamed past - awesome to watch especially from our west coast perspective where we are morning flight deprived in general! A couple of the waves had close to 100 birds, and based on the brief views from town before heading up the hill we likely missed many hundreds if not another thousand plus at first light. The bulk of the flight was VATH with just a few robins mixed in. Also ORJU, AUWA, TOWA, HETH, AMPI, YEWA.
