Many,many thanks to Brian Butler for conducting the count today and to
super spotter Phil Rodriguez for his efforts today !!
Per Brian Butler- "Lot's of Bald Eagles again !! Counted 23 and saw about
the same amount that we did not count ! " Local Kestrel pair giving
dazzling displays but not counted. The close adult Peregrine Falcon
cruising down above the river at eye level in great light was easily
our Bird of the Day !!!
