Raptor Alley 2-7-2021

  • Hi all

    I did Raptor Alley scouting trip on Saturday for upcoming Colorado State University Field Ornithology trip I am leading. Only got to do southern half, south of Weld CR 108, because winds picked up at 20+ mph around 10am.

    Total raptors: 24

    • Northern Harrier - 1
    • American Kestrel - 9
    • Bald Eagle - 3
    • Ferruginous Hawk - 3
    • Rough-legged Hawk - 2
    • Red-tailed Hawk - 3
    • Prairie Falcon - 2
    • Golden Eagle - 1

    I did find a new, active Bald Eagle nest at CR 102/19 intersection.
