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.
