Peregrine v GHOW

Great excitement today. I heard a Peregrine while I was inside my house entering data for the GBBC.
I ran outside to see the Peregrine diving and diving, circling with constant calling. Six crows entered the fray and they finally flushed out a GHOW. Not bad!

Double Digits!

After all of last year's fun, I am sad to report that my total does not reflect a lack of update, but actually is the current total of my BIGBY for the year (and, unfortunately my mileage total is pretty accurate as well!). I was pumped to add two more birds today, with a flyover Ring-billed Gull (I didn't think I'd miss having dozens of them outside my window like I did in Milwaukee, but I certainly do!), as well as a Cooper's Hawk drifting above my apartment, bringing me to 11 species. Going through some serious BIGBY withdrawl this year, pumped to see how well you guys are doing, even with the dumpings of snow you all picked up two weeks ago!

Take care,
