Summary

What a wonderful day of birding with EOB friends. The day started off downright chilly but by 4:00 PM it had warmed up to – 8 Celsius, and, with next to no windchill. Birds of Prey were once again everywhere we looked on the island.  28 Northern Harriers, 26 Red-tailed Hawks, 20 Rough-legged Hawks, 14 Snowy Owls, 8 Short-eared Owls, 7 Bald Eagles, 1 Cooper’s Hawk, 1 Northern Shrike. Surprise of the day: Great Blue Heron hunting meadow voles in a field! Nice spotting on the Great Blue, Maddie :). Species checklists below…
