Re: [cayugabirds-l] Lots 'O redtailed Hawks

Wow.
So what is the explanation for so many red tails in one 
location.is this a migration event..or simply an 
over-abundance of prey in this particular locale? Or something else?

Thanks

Hi,
I checked out the Cornell game farm on Stevenson and game farm roads this 
afternoon at 3 PM. I easily counted 62 Redtailed Hawks on the fences and in the 
trees. In the main big tree there were 22 hawks alone. Also loads of Starlings, 
eating the grain.

RE:[cayugabirds-l] Lots 'O redtailed Hawks

2016-02-14 Thread Kevin J. McGowan
And an adult BALD EAGLE on the compost mounds at 2:00, then perched in the tree 
line above the compost for the next two hours.

The number of Red-tailed Hawks in that tree got to 25 while I was there. I 
spent too much time sitting still photographing two young hawks reluctantly 
"sharing" a recently killed pheasant to get an accurate count. But, I could see 
42 from that one spot, so I suspect Laura's number is more accurate than what I 
put in ebird.
