November 10th - Thought it might have been better!

With cold air moving in to the area after the rain last night we thought that we have a few more birds flying today than we did. The lower level clouds were coming in from the WNW most of the day but that didn't seem to interest the birds at all.

Today:
Sharp-shinned Hawk - 3
Cooper's Hawk - 1
Northern Goshawk - 1
Total - 5

To Date:
Turkey Vulture - 1862
Osprey - 125
Bald Eagle - 67
Northern Harrier - 204
Sharp-shinned Hawk - 1754
Cooper's Hawk - 88
Northern Goshawk - 19
Red-shouldered Hawk - 28
Broad-winged Hawk - 757
Red-tailed Hawk - 806
Rough-legged Hawk - 7
Golden Eagle - 2
American Kestrel - 624
Merlin - 129
Peregrine Falcon - 45
Total - 6517
