Many thanks to Birthday Boy- Patrick Keelen for conducting the count today and to the hard working team of observers who did a great job as always ! Takes a team to get this count done and we have a great team ! A pretty solid count day today but to be honest we were expecting a few more birds under these conditions. The Bird of the Day selection will incredibly go to a Black Vulture that came in very tight to the ridge and appeared to actually take a run at the owl decoy !!!! WHAT?!?!?! That is a first for us for sure !!! Wish I would have seen that !
