Years ago some of us used to do 50 mile raptor surveys on
routes of our own choice.  They were then submitted to
Jim D. Wilson and Brad Jacobs, MDC.  I did my raptor run
today.  It goes through Barton and Vernon counties, sw MO.
I would have had a few more if I had a spotter along with me.
Today was a great day to be out:
