RAPTORS ON MY MIND
On August 1st I read the first post of the 2003 North American hawkwatch season on BIRDHAWK
The report comes from Waggoner's Gap Penn with Dave Grove being the official counter.
Total observation time: 5 hours Official Counter: Dave Grove Observers: Craig Houston, Don Orris, Gene Wagner, Joe Lavella Weather: The 2003 fall season began with rain and fog in the morning. The afternoon was overcast with a moderate S wind. Observations: TV and BV circulated in the PM
Just reading the report made my day. It didn't matter that they did not see anything other than circling black and turkey vultures. The folks were there, "eyes to the sky" eager to catch a glimpse of the first migrating raptors. Those are my kind of people.
If you have never experienced a "hawkwatch", give it a try. You can check with your local birding organizations or HMANA.
