An exciting day on the ridge which featured our first TWO Northern Goshawks of the season as well a few Golden Eagles and some nice diversity. A BIG THANK YOU to our hardworking crew of observers that are better known as the CP ELITE ! They are: Brian Butler, Al Ambler and Phil Rodriguez. These 3 gentlemen give us great coverage during the weekdays especially when the weather cooperates and we know that raptors will be on the move! Per Brian Butler- " A beautiful autumn day to be up on 'Coon. A day that featured 2 Golden Eagles, our first 2 Northern Goshawks, and a Gray Ghost. But our Bird of the Day selection goes to the female Northern Harrier that came in on the river side of the ridge and FILLED OUR BINS !"
Non-raptor Observations: TV's & BV's Ravens- 15 Buckmoths Also- 1 Peregrine and 8 Bald Eagles seen but not counted as migrating.
