Mike Golden and Chris Scanton assisted me today on the route. We took advantage of the sunny weather and relatively warm temperatures for a great break from the Frozen Fog Blues and counted 185 raptors. All in all a beautiful day of birding if you like that sort of thing, which is a safe bet seeing how you are reading this post. As usual for this run there were crazy numbers of hawks between Lower Bridge Way and Ice Avenue with 91 Redtails. One could spend half a day checking out all the cool plumage variations there but we had to keep moving.
