This route was established in 2017 by Sharon Gewecke and this is the second
year for Janet and I joining her on the route. It covers open farm county in
the vicinity of the Westmoreland Fair Grounds in Pleasant Unity, and
includes a pass through Mammoth Park.
For the second year we tallied a Peregrine Falcon. This year’s Peregrine
Falcon was seen by all flying over the open fields on Fairgrounds Road, less
than ˝ mile from where we saw one last year on Pollins Road.
Just 12 total raptors on this cold day, but good variety. (Just a total of
15 last year).
