Joan Lentz and I went looking for upland Bald Eagles that have been seen along Foxen Cyn Road. We didn't see them. But we had a nice array of raptors on Foxen Cyn Rd between its junction with Alisos Cyn Rd and Tres Hermanas Winery. We scoped this area from one spot only: 34.78460 -120.16831. 2 Ferruginous Hawks (one was a dark morph), 1 Prairie Falcon, a Harrier, and 10 Red-tails were present. Not much on Alisos Cyn Rd. On Foxen Cyn Rd about 1 mile south of its junction with Zaca Station Rd we birded the top of the high point on the road. Here we had 14 Red-tails and no other raptors. Noteworthy was that we had more Western Meadowlarks along Armour Ranch than at all the other places combined. We birded that area quickly. Our results are on eBird. The checklists for everybody's eBirding in Santa Barbara County for the last week can be found here: https://ebird.org/region/US-CA-083/activity
