Subject: [obol] Madras Raptor Route
Three Shrikes and We're OUT!  Well no, just finished with our Madras
Raptor Route   It started out COLD but by the time we reached Madras it
was a balmy 21* and only got better as the day progressed with a high of
52*.  Not a cloud to be had all day and very little wind.  Really
sssllloooww with a total of only 58 birds in 54 miles as follows:

29 Red-tailed Hawks -Nine pairs

27 American Kestrels -Six pairs

  1 Northern Harrier

  1 Great Horned Owl -On her nest

  3 Northern Shrikes!!  As in THREE!  That's the most EVER!

58 Total Raptors

Somehow I don't think we will improve on that next month.
