Had some good raptors in Robertson County on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Last week, I saw what I thought were two adult White-tailed Hawks along the tracks over Hwy 50 near the Hwy 6 by-pass. Well, must have been, as we saw a 1st yr White-tailed this time.
Of note, a Krider's Hawk, an immature White-tailed Hawk, and a Leucistic Red-tailed (almost albino, but not quite), a Bald Eagle, and about 4 Harlan's Hawks at various places throughout the Brazos River bottom.
Also had 2 Long-billed Curlews, along with Least Sandpipers, Snipe, Yellowlegs, and hundreds and hundreds of Killdeer in the flooded, but drying up fields.
