Hawkwatch - Monday, September 11, 2017

Happy Monday, everyone. The raptor flight was on the slower side today and most movement was high overhead or far over the treeline. We were lucky to see a few close(ish) views of all three falcons, a Bald Eagle successfully harassing an Osprey for its fish, and a trio of Glossy Ibis that took a rest on Bunker Pond.

A Tree Swallow going after a little morsel.

Not a bird! This White-tailed Deer was feeding right in front of the platform early this morning.
