hawk hill

Every fall, all the owls, hawks, eagles--the raptors--fly south and they hit Lake Ontario. They cannot fly across Lake Ontario, so they fly along it until they can go south. Top photo is the hawk counting crew. From September into winter, they sit on Hawk Hill and count the birds. Today was a good one--138 turkey vultures, 4 golden eagles, 5 American eagles, and lots of birds I missed because I was there for plants, not birds. I thought they deserved the sundog rainbow. They will be there tomorrow, and the next day, and the next...until the birds stop coming. And they have eyes as keen as hawks.
