Cool day at the hawk watch , lighter winds from the WNW more sun and more birds.Thanks to all the visitors that came over the weekend for the Raptor Fest. Thanks also to Erich Doerr for writing for The St.Ignace News for the awesome article in their paper! Today we were treated to an awesome display as a Peregrine took down a blackbird in midair and then flew around over the watch showing off its catch! There were a total of 4 Peregrines today! Two immature Golden Eagles were also seen today with 80 Red-tailed Hawks.
