August 15th - 8 Birds, 6 Species

Turned out to be a not too bad kind-a day.  Best sighting of all was seeing Carol walking around the park.  She's looking fabulous and walking well!  We look forward to seeing her back at Rosetta with her binoculars in-hand real soon.  Today's 2 Red-tailed Hawks put on a spectacular aerial display way up high for Ron and myself.  Likely a pair of siblings just havin' some fun.

Today:
Osprey - 1
Broad-winged Hawk - 1
Red-tailed Hawk - 2
American Kestrel - 2
Merlin - 1
Peregrine Falcon - 1
Total - 8

To Date:

Broad-winged Hawk - 4

Wow, 39 birds already, this has been our best 'first half of August' ever!

Phil, Ron, and Betty were there for some of the bird action today.

There are several days coming up that are not-so conducive to hawk migration.  Hopefully the forecaster's have got it wrong.  Stay tuned.
