Thanks to Pete and Mike 2, we had a much better count than we otherwise would have. Walter and I bailed at around 1pm and went with Phil to chase a rare bird. We failed to see it. By that time Walter and I had seen only 6 birds.
Mike 2 and Peter must have arrived very shortly after Walter, Phil and I left. From 1pm-4pm They saw another 26 birds!! Their help left us just 6 birds short of a new monthly record for total raptors
All totalled both shifts saw:
4 American Kestrels
32 Total Raptors
A summary of the monthly totals will be posted tomorrow.
