Saw 2 Ruddy Ground-Doves in the dirt and adjacent metal fence next to water tank at NW corner of the feedlot, same area they have been for some days - at 4 pm Wed Jan 24. Great close view. They were not present late morning. Also, in the midst of the cattle swarm were 2 ravens with high pitched voices, rounded tails and a roman nose, I called em Chihuahuan. Prairie Falcon flew over as I got off the freeway at Red Rock.
Further north, no Lewis Woodpecker at the spot but a flock of 45 White-throated Swift wheeling overhead.
At the former Evergreen turf farm, found a flock of 20 Mountain Plover N of Pretzer, W of Tweedy, and one with Killdeer a bit further N on Tweedy. Also, 3 Ferruginous Hawks soaring W of the farm.
Harlan's Red-tailed Hawk was at corner of Greene Res Rd and Curry, where it has apparently been seen before.
