We had 14 participants and totaled 29 species. The highlight of the morning was at Arcadia, where we had a kettle of raptors, including Red-tailed, Cooper’s and Sharp-shinned Hawks and a Northern Harrier.
It was difficult seeing much of anything when we first started as it was quite foggy. Once it burned off it became warm and clear. We did the Northampton Meadows, Aqua Vitae Rd, Honeypot Rd and Arcadia last. There was a folk festival at Arcadia that day which brought in many people, but it did not affect where we were headed so that was good.
