Subject: [cobirds] Hawks Galore in Wetmore (Custer)
This morning in the fields north of Wetmore I counted over 100 buteos in
an area of maybe 50 acres. Most were perched on fence posts, a few were on
the ground. None were flying. They were mixed buteo species. I
identified Red-tailed, Swainson's and a Harrier. It was private property and most
were too far away to identify as species, however, they appeared to be
mostly buteos.

I don't remember ever seeing anything like this before It was almost
surreal. Why would so many hawks converge on one area in late July?
