Now Back To Your Regularily Scheduled Raptor Watch

Today was highlighted by a late movement of 3 Bald Eagles. Walter spotted the first one as Lyn was about to leave. I hollered her back to see the first of 3 Bald Eagles fly by. Walter and I hung in and as we packed up to go I spotted the 2nd Bald Eagle of the day. It was at 508pm. Wondering what else might come,packing up to go again at 530pm,Walter looked up and said "Im not kidding you!" Bald Eagle number 3. Earlier in the day we had seen a few Northern Harriers and a few passing Redtailed Hawks. Ann got these excellent shots of a passing RedtailedHawk.
Our final total of 25 Raptors was:
2-Turkey Vultures
3-Bald Eagles(315pm,508pm & 530pm)
7-Northern Harriers
6-Sharpshinned Hawks
1-Coopers Hawk
5-Redtailed Hawks
2-Merlin
1-Peregrine Falcon
We saw thousands of migrating Robins today,particularily in the morning. Down on the lake we saw several Red-breasted Mergansers too.
Keep your eye on Thursday,the winds look most favorable that day.
