The Ravens were quite testy today and would tolerate no interlopers in their airspace. 90+ Ravens command a lot of sky.
First they attacked each other. Then the Red-tails. When the Black Hawks appeared the Ravens harassed them
mercilessly - no wonder the Black Hawks leave for the north. Finally they annoyed a pair of Golden Eagles, forming like
a cloud of gnats around them. Have they no fear?

The local Cooper’s Hawks and Kestrel went somehow unnoticed by the Ravens.

The first pair of Black Hawks appeared at 9:24. A group of 4 struggled by the Ravens at 10:16.

The Eagles were sighted after 1:00.

Migrating Raptors:
Common Black Hawk 9
Turkey Vulture 12
Red-tailed Hawk 6
Sharp-shinned Hawk 1
Black Vulture 4
Golden Eagle 2
