Birdwatchers at Ripley Hawk Watch

I joined the Cattaraugus County Bird Club today for the field trip to Ripley Hawk Watch in Ripley, NY! You know that it was the wrong day to visit when you show up and they say “Should have been here yesterday, we had over 7,000 birds pass over”! Yep, not the best day but did get a few species fly overhead! Most everything were bird specks . . . . . you know just dots in the sky!

    Yes, I am always amazed at how the regular “watchers” can find and id all of those specs.

  2. Gosh, who knew, my hawks might have passed you all. I have not seen any of my usual Coopers Hawk family in a month or so.

    Great capture of the Birdwatchers at Ripley Hawk Watch. I don’t think I’ve ever been birding from a lawn chair before.
