The Gyrfalcon failed to put in an appearance up at Fir Island on Thursday, notwithstanding the best efforts of our Gyr-whisperer, Marve Breece. Thanks to all those folks who "encouraged" me by saying, " I saw it yesterday," but I am now 0-4 after my 4 hours. A plethora of eagles seemed to be on guard for the possible intruder.
However, we did have great views of the Peregrine (Tundra), a Northern Shrike, Eurasian Wigeon and thousands of Dunlin, plus simultaneous scope views of what almost certainly were two Harlan's Red-tailed Hawks.
