5-Sept-2002 Field Notes

Another morning of heavy skies and tropical temps. Around 0800, showers along the S Sierra and Temblors were strikingly visible. Feels like more showers are imminent and I wonder about lightening rods….. My first set of signals were at 0917 and several Ventana birds were already directly off the La Panzas. Could they have spent the night?? Between 0917 and 1145, I had Y-192,Or-212, B-164, and B-171 strong between 40° NE and 60°NE. By 1557, all the birds had moved back up N, except Y-192 who had moved steadily SE, maybe as far as Lion Cn, before returning NW. -Paul Andreano
