My sister Sharon and brother-in-law Ted joined Kay and I for the Coquille Valley raptor count Saturday 2/17. This is a 71 mile route route, temps 48-55 with intermittent squalls. Poor visibility for the last hour of this nearly 7 hour route. 6 3/4 What a difference a month makes. Many less Red Shouldered Hawks. Fewer Kites, but good views of all! Nothing quite like sunshine on an adult Red Shouldered Hawk!
