Sept 29th 59 Raptors...YTD...3033 Great Photos

Today viewing really slowed down in the afternoon, but those gathered had some good views of several birds and some fantastic photo opportunities. Several folks sent along great shots, so there are a number of them today by a number of people. We had a large group out today, Walter and I thank those that brought us coffee and donuts(Mark,Phil and Norm). We welcomed several new visitors today, Rita and Amanda among them. I applaud all of our watchers who have once again made new folks feel most welcome. Thanks to John for the above TV photo) Thanks to Mike for the Merlin leaving the tree photo. Thanks to Lee for perched Merlin shots.

  Todays excitement was a Merlin and a Redtailed Hawk that perched in a tree, as well as a Coopers Hawk. Thanks to Joe for the take-off Coopers Hawk for the perched Coopers.

Todays total of 59 included:
11-Northern Harriers
31-Sharpshinned Hawks
2-Coopers Hawks
10-American Kestrels
1-Peregrine Falcon
59-Total Raptors

Thanks to Mike4 for the Redtail leaving the tree and John for the Redtail in flight photo.

Thanks to everyone who sent photos. I feel many of the photos submitted are as good as any taken by anyone anywhere. Congratulations to you all.
If we dont get much rain to the north tomorrow(Sept 30) conditions look very good!
