The rainfall maps indicated that NC FICo was our best hope for locating some playas, and we had fair luck. About 2pm this afternoon Sara and I along with Dan LaShelle headed out. Our best birds included:
Six duck species, some coots and single Great Blue Heron and WF Ibis.
One adult Broad-winged Hawk hanging out and flying around with a group of Swainson's Hawks in very open country. It was miles to the nearest tree.
Swainson's Hawks: a total of 195 in a half dozen groups.
