August 30th - 9 More Birdies

A big thankyou goes out to Terry 2 and Betty who watched and counted the birds today in my absence. Great to know that there are backup counters when needed! I did some much needed gardening and cut up a large branch that fell during the last crazy storm we had. I conducted a mini 'watch' from the yard this afternoon but saw absolutely nothing over a 1 hour period. Many Goldfinches and a Hummingbird in the yard though.

Northern Harrier - 2
Sharp-shinned Hawk - 2
Cooper's Hawk - 1
Broad-winged Hawk - 1
American Kestrel - 1
Merlin - 2
Total - 9

To Date:
Turkey Vulture - 2
Osprey - 8
Bald Eagle - 2
Northern Harrier - 13
Sharp-shinned Hawk - 31
Cooper's Hawk - 2
Broad-winged Hawk - 9
Red-tailed Hawk - 1
American Kestrel - 12
Merlin - 3
Total - 83

I'll be at the park tomorrow (Wednesday) to see if we can squeeze a few more birds out for the month of August. As it appears right now, our next good day might be Sunday or Monday or both...but that could change.
