Comments - Been running this route since 2001. For nearly the first half of the route I didn't have any raptors. Struck out on Bald Eagle at the usual spot. Once I got to the open country near the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport and Imperial I started to find red-tails. After last year's great Red-shouldered count, I found none this year. Sunshine during the entire route but cold with a steady temperature of 27 degrees.
