Hot and Humid..But A Few Raptors

Today was predictably slow,but Walter,Berle,Pat,Nancy,Cory and I saw 15 raptors. A few pairs of Sharpshinned Hawk siblings passed by together. The local Merlin zipped through and caught a large dragonfly in flight. By days end we saw:
Osprey............................1
Northern Harrier..........1
Sharpshinned Hawk...10
Coopers Hawk...............1
American Kestrel..........2
Total Raptors..............15
The local Coopers Hawk and a few local Turkey Vultures put on nice close flying displays. Also seen today were a few more Ruby-throated Hummingbirds and a few Warbler species. Many Cedar Waxwings are seen migrating every day.
