Comments - Another beautiful day on this route. The rolling hills and
farmlands of Schuylkill County are stunning on a sunny winter day. This is
my 5th year running this route. Northern Harrier was a new raptor species.
Jes spotted the female harrier soaring over a switchgrass field. New high
count for Cooper's Hawk (3), one higher than the previous high. Everything
else was just about at average. New high count for Black Vulture (5),
previous was 4.
