October 3rd - 5 Birds, 5 Species

We had some great cloud cover up high today but few birds were flying.  The Kestrel that was seen flapped it's way across our viewing area making me think that it was a shorebird.  With low wind, the bird was definitely working to get where it was going.

Northern Harrier - 1
Sharp-shinned Hawk - 1
Cooper's Hawk - 1
American Kestrel - 1
Peregrine Falcon - 1
