Sept.28th Bad Weather Good Count 82...YTD 2913

Despite todays poor weather,we still had a good count. Colin,Rodger and Jane joined me. There were many close birds,and a few very high ones. The bird of the day,a quote from Colin:
"Today >>> at the Bluffs with Big Frank ... 80+ raptors ... highlight >>> "big" juvenile female Gos' flying with a Harrier ... separating from the Harrier's flight path, Gos' made a quick right hand turn to fly past Big Frank and I at eye level ...and just 20 to 30 feet away from us ... we could see her eye(s) !!! "
