This morning there were at least 23 MOUNTAIN PLOVERS at the Evergreen Turd sod farm at the Santa Cruz Flats. Also present was a SNOW GOOSE. The plovers were in the southeast quadrant bordered by Pretzer and Tweedy roads.
The "HARLANS" Red-tailed Hawk reported since 18 Nov at Curry and Greene Reservoir roads continues. One was at the same location last winter 15 Dec-15 Mar.
I observed a total of 50 CRESTED CARACARAS in 3 locations: 35 at the sheep farm southeast of Sunland Gin and Pearce roads; 14 in the Baumgartner/Wheeler area; and one surprisingly at the West Coast Turf sod farm adjacent to and immediately south of Evergreen Turf.
