My fingers were so cold I forgot to type the location earlier this afternoon when I was at Game Farm Road and the Compost today from 3:30-4:30. It seemed like raptor-ville; so I thought I would post. Someone suggested I was looking at Short-eared Owls, which I had never seen before. (Thanks,

Snowy Owl still present at 2:30, slightly west of fenced antenna tower and closer to Martin rd. This was a life bird for me! Thanks to all who found and refound this bird! Also saw a Northern Harrier that flew low over the fields when I first arrived. Thanks again! Good Owling, Josh On Fri, Jan

[cayugabirds-l] Many Hawks at game farm

2015-01-09 Thread Sandy
I think I am looking at 6 juvenile Red-tailed Hawks and saw two crow-size Hawks and one other hawk that is not a RTH. They are very active right now and have been resting on posts and on trees in the hedge row. Will try to identify later. Sent from my iPhone -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:
