All, We did this WRS for the 19th year centered south of Nockamixon St. Pk. that was first established by Bill Etter for 10 years . It was a perfect day for a WRS. Calm winds and partly cloudy skies made spotting easier. Add Devich with his Polaroid sun glasses, and some luck and the count was surprising. The previous high for Red-tailed Hawk of 48 in 2013 was smashed, with 69 total this day. The 33 Black Vultures also were a high beating 26 last year. Despite the 208 kestrels fledged this year in Devich's boxes and passing several of those boxes today, we only had one pair.
