State Line Hawk Watch Yesterday

IMG_2947
Had a delightful afternoon at State Line Hawk Watch yesterday, even if the Broad-wings ignored my memo and stayed away in droves. Highlights included nine Bald Eagles and 25 American Kestrels. Plus lots of Monarch butterflies and a skink or two.

(A big thanks to everyone with eyes on the skies!)
