Fourteen raptor watchers (ranging in age from four to seventy!) joined us
on the main overlook at Cooper’s Rock State Forest this afternoon to look
for migrating hawks, vultures, and whatever else flew past. Highlights
included more than 80 cedar waxwings, at least 39 turkey vultures, 8
red-tailed hawks, 5 black vultures, 3 common ravens, 2 Cooper’s hawks, and
one immature bald eagle. We also saw a handful of monarch butterflies,
several dragonflies, cicadas, many dogs, one drone, and a wedding.

It was a gorgeous day to be on the overlook!
