Hi all, On Friday morning 3/23/18 the leucistic Raven was present at the Knott Road Landfill, being pursued by a Bald Eagle.
It's been a while since visiting Wickiup Reservoir, so Saturday morning I went to check it out. Water is very high, with about 4 inches of Snow on the ground. Did not need 4wheel D but decided no to drive all the way around, plus it was quite choppy out there, so not much to report.

On the early date of 18th March last year I saw a Swainson's Hawk in Klamath Falls, so thought I would try my luck around Alfalfa. Lots of high flying Red-tails plus 2 or more Ferruginous Hawks, One of the later dive bombing a Golden Eagle. No Swainson's Hawks seen.
