Nov 29th - Today?, More Birders Than Birds!

Sorry for the late post, my eyes were closed earlier and I found it extremely hard to type. 😄

A clear indication that we're done at the Watch for this season - today we had perfect flight conditions all day and very few birds.  We had our hopes up and our finger's crossed that some of the missing were going to fly over the park today but it just wasn't to be - they're gone for another year!  Having said that, we'll try for a little while again tomorrow mid-day, if it's not raining.

Rosetta McClain Gardens Raptor Watch, Toronto
29 November 2017
10:30am - 3:30pm

Raptors:
Sharp-shinned Hawk - 1
Red-tailed Hawk - 4
Total - 5

Other Birds:
Loons - 4, Merlin (local) - 1, Red-tailed Hawk (local) - 2

Please, if you can join us tomorrow (Thursday) there will be a small celebration for Richard (Rosetta's gardener and friend to all) at 11:00am as tomorrow is his last day before retirement.  Richard has been absolutely instrumental in helping us year after year with our Hawk Watch, our Monarch tagging, and our Springtime birding.  Of course, above all else, he has expanded everyone's knowledge when it comes to just about everything that grows!  I'm sure we all have many great memories from over the years.  He will definitely be missed!
