Most of the raptors seen today were high/distant birds. Numerous Bald Eagles, Redtails, and 1 Peregrine seen but not counted as migrating. Bird(s) of the Day honors goes to the 2 Kestrels that were dogfighting their way down the ridge before deciding to take their frustrations out on the owl decoy. Very cool..
