MObirders -
Recall years ago that some of us had 50 mile raptor routes
that we did for Jim D and Brad J but mostly for our own pleasure.
Mine goes from Barton County through Bushwhacker CA, Vernon
County then  west and south through PSP.  Results today:
Red-tailed Hawk    32
Dark Red-tail on north road at Bushwhacker (again this year).  1
Dark Red-tail at PSP   1
Buteo species      11
Am. Kestrel         11
N. Harrier gray      3
N. Harrier brown   11
Bald Eagle adult    2
Shrike species      2
Snow Geese waves    6  (all going east and east southeast).
I hardly stopped for any sparrows.
Good birding,  Larry H.  Joplin MO.  [log in to unmask]
