Thanks to Bill and Ruth, sorry I have forgotten last name, I was able to enjoy a kettle of 36 or more Swainsons hawk. There might of been another type of Hawk but Swainsons was the only one identified . It was at nightfall and they flew under the clouds on their way north. It was beautiful!
I don’t really have a good list of clothes I’ve seen but I will make a brief list.
Swainson’s thrush – tons of them
Gray cheek thrush
Yellow breasted chat
Western an eastern kingbirds
Lark,vesper, and chipping sparrows
Blue gray gnatcatchers
Red winged black birds
Loggerhead shrike (I got to watch and catch a grasshopper and impale it on some barbed wire!
Western meadow larks
Eurasian collard doves
I suppose that it for now.
