American Kestrel

February 20

Beautiful weather in the Bitterroot Valley provided a nice setting for observing many active raptors, including 5 American Kestrels and two Prairie Falcons along with many Rough-legged and Red-tailed Hawks on Tammany Lane East of Hamilton. A stop at Lee Metcalf on the way back to Missoula revealed a big increase in the amount of open water and the expected collection of waterfowl as well as several Tundra Geese. No new birds for the year today.
