All.
This survey runs from Franconia Twp. to the western border of the county. This is the 14th yr. for this route, with 2016 missed. As the area gets developed and sterile farm fields herbicided and stripped of vegetation provide little food, we felt fortunate to find as many birds as we did. Getting lucky with close great views of the two Rough-leged Hawks at Green Lane Reservoir-Church Rd. area and two N. Harriers were a big plus. Two Com. Ravens soaring with TVs I think were the first for the survey even though not raptors.
