No way around it today was a disappointment. Folks expected so much more than what we saw. From counts elsewhere the birds flew inland and we just plain couldnt see them. Broadwinged Hawks just dont generally follow the shoreline closely enough to come within our range to the north. That said, is it really that bad a day when one sees a Bald Eagle, Osprey, Peregrine Falcon and a selection of other raptors?
Today Gunner, Tony, Sheldon, Theresa, Theresa 2, Carol, Carol 2, Berle, Peter, Gary, Patty, Lee, Cori, Cathy, Lorne, Bob, Tom, Norm, Sam, Paul, Ray, Allison, Brad, Mikes 2,3 and 4 all joined us to impatiently wait for today's raptors which included:
1-Bald Eagle (juvenile 10:35am (4th this season at 1030am)
Sharpshinned Hawk adult
The next decent day looks like Wednesday right now.
