Hawk Count Nov. 7

Today Ed Pike, Steve Baker and Bruce Seeger counted raptors with Jack and Bev Kirby stopping by for a visit. It was cold (28 at 8:30 and 38 by noon) with northwest winds, peaks of sunshine. Few raptors were flying with those that were flying were very high. We did see one Golden Eagle and a few Red-tails. 4 “V’s” of Sandhill Cranes flew south across the Straits. Still hoping for more Rough-legged Hawks and Golden Eagles; maybe a Snowy Owl.
