This week's destination: 11/21 and NEW MEETING TIME

It's around peak Golden Eagle migration and I *really* wanted to hit Franklin Mountain this week, but I need to be home by 1:00 for a rescheduled appointment. Boo.

So instead, I'm suggesting meeting at the Thacher Park overlook at 9:00am. They've had several Goldens this fall, one just last week, and hope springs eternal, right? The 5mph wind is from the northwest which is the hawk-driving direction. If you're on facebook, check out these pics from a few weeks ago - this GOEA flew directly under the escarpment!

I got about a dozen replies last week about changing the winter meeting time to 9:00am, all positive. So for the cold months, we'll assemble at 9:00 and run until noonish as usual. Come spring we can go back to 8:00 until the big migration weeks, when I'll float the "meet at 7:00" proposal.
Enjoy your extra hour!
