Subject: [obol] Winter Raptor Route Little Valley to Harper, Malheur County
Cold, light snow, but good visibility. 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 pm, Monday,
11-6-17. My first time running this route so I probably missed some
known local spots for Great-horned Owls etc. Sadly, I witnessed an
American Kestrel electrocuted and fried when it landed on a power pole.
Data taken down to share with power company. Sometimes they go right
out and put up landing barriers etc.

76 raptors total, 33 miles on the route.

44 Red-tailed Hawks
19 American Kestrels
7 Northern Harriers
2 Rough-legged Hawks
3 Prairie Falcons
1 Ferruginous Hawk

Good birding, Judy Meredith, <jmeredit...>
