Oct 6 35 Raptors ..mostly upflight

Today most of the birds were seen between 8am and 10am(19 of 35). Walter,Ann,Richard,Bill,Berle,Carol,Betty and Lee saw some of the birds at least. We had a Merlin land briefly that had been harassed by crows. We had 2 Merlins go through together earlier in the day. The most exciting thing was watching a group of migrating Blue Jays dive very quickly for tree cover. The cause...a wee Sharpshinned Hawk. We are hoping for a big day tomorrow.
Todays total was:
1-Northern Harrier
26-Sharpshinned Hawks
2-Coopers Hawks
1-American Kestrel
5-Merlins
