Three more raptor species
The day after my last post, I added three new raptor species while out and about in the city!
Yesterday, while I was leading a birdwalk on the UNO campus, a Peregrine came zipping eastbound down the lakefront. (This happened seconds after an eager student had to peel off and go to class- why does it seem to happen that way??)
The remaining participants spied an Osprey tearing into a fish on a pylon out in the lake.
Finally, while leaving campus on Elysian Fields at 5 pm, I drove beneath a Cooper's Hawk perched on the horizontal arm of one of the streetlights. Streaked below: immature.
Gotta love it,
