The FERRUGINOUS HAWK found yesterday by Nancy Stotz along Airport Rd. was seen by several birders this morning/early afternoon. From Hwy 99, go west on Airport Rd. to where the road makes a 90-degree turn to the south, and park right where the road turns west again. The bird was way out in the field to the SE, seen in flight and perched (both on the ground and in a small tree).
First county record in over 20 years! A great year for this species in the Valley.
