Notes

I flipped for 9.5 hours that day and 5 hours the day before. I didn't find any milks myself until 9 hours into this second day. It was sunny and windy all day and two other observers flipped milks in a nearby area. We tried this other ridge and as the day wound down the sky became overcast and the wind died down. There were scattered storms on this night as well as the one before. Male was found under a very large rock that had a flat bottom. He had much better body weight than the two milks my friends had flipped in the other canyon.
