Aug 5th - Much the Same but...

Today was much the same as yesterday with no migrating raptors flying over Rosetta.  We again added a handful of new birds and butterflies to our fall species lists including a very rare visitor to the park - a Black-billed Cuckoo!  Only the second one since 2002 that I'm aware of.  It may still be around so we'll look for it again tomorrow in the northwest corner of the park where it was seen.  A big 'thankyou' to Ed McAskill for letting me know and showing me his photo of the bird.  Excellent find!

Lee, Kris, Theresa, Richard, Berle, Gunnar, Rosemary, Ron, Arvo, Brian, and Ed were all at the park today anticipating our first raptor.

We'll try again tomorrow.
