I am back again for another season of counting on West Bluff and looking forward to the season ahead with much anticipation. As expressed by others, hopefully the weather is more cooperative this year and folks are able to more easily make it to the mountain to see some of the better flights, particularly in April and early May when the peak for many of the species occurs. Hope to see some of you up there soon!
Its been a bit of a cold start to the count these first couple of days, perhaps not surprising given the severity of this winter. So far I’ve had a dozen Bald Eagles along with a Golden Eagle and a Northern Goshawk. Not too many other birds around so far other than the omnipresent Ravens. Here’s to warmer days ahead!
