Slow Monday...No Surprise...Tomorrow has promise

Today was another slow day. Walter and I were joined by Pat,Betty,Nancy,Carol,Cori,Shirley and a few others. We saw only 15 raptors but enjoyed the good company. Tomorrow has some promise,the wind is to be 15kmh north. With so little moving lately,this might be enough to move some birds our way. A big push of Turkey Vultures is out there somewhere and Redtailed and Redshouldered Hawks are just starting up. With luck we will get a number of birds tomorrow. Thursday is also a possibility.
Today we saw:
2-Northern Harrier
9-Sharpshinned Hawk
1-Redtailed Hawk
1-American Kestrel
1-Merlin
1-Peregrine Falcon
Watch the skies and bushes for Eastern Bluebirds,they should migrate soon. Eyes peeled for Golden Eagle and Roughlegged Hawks,could be seen any time now. Lets hope we see high numbers of them just as we have other raptors this fall. We have seen a few Purple Finch lately. Each morning we are searching for Northern Sawhet Owls,as its their migration time. Over night a few years back at Tommy Thompson Park 300 were banded during the month of October. Surely one will stop off at Rosetta in the coming weeks.
