Sept25 Day Count 211...Year To Date 2652



Today was another fantastic day. The weatherman was happily wrong,we had high winds that were northwest much of the day. How does the old joke go? If U dont like the weather wait a minute and it will change? We had the bluest blue skies,perfect hawk skies (with nice puffy clouds in the blue sky) and completely cloudy skies,but still counted 211 raptors.I had plenty of help spotting and IDing.Thanks to Colin,Rodger and Jane,Mary,Gunner,Carol and Ron,for their contributions to the count and very enjoyable days.
