Judy and I decided to go to the Cheese-n-More store in Gap Mills, Monroe
County today and get lunch and enjoy it in view of Peters Mt. It didn't
take long to see it was going to be a great day for raptors along the
roadside.

sub-adult, 1 2nd year bird and 4 1st year birds), 2 red-tailed hawks and 1
