- Nov 14, 2010It was a super day for Rough-legged Hawks. I saw 18 of them in 2 1/2 hours of driving what is basically our CBC route. The first three were all dark-morphs, the first was the same one I saw yesterday (same location). The other two darks were in the same general area; they were only a kilometer or so apart too.
The last seven Roughies were spotted while driving a 1.5 km stretch of road east of Estevan.
Bald Eagles at Boundary, 5 of which 2 were adults
Ring-necked Pheasants, 23-24
Sharp-tailed Grouse, 6
Great Blue Heron, 1
Common Loon, 1 juv
Common Goldeneye, 5-6 - first of the Fall/Winter
Northern Shovellers, 10+
Lesser Scaups, 6
Hooded Mergansers, 2
Canada, Cackling and Snow Geese
American Robins, 2
Other species I've listed in the past few trips
Mule Deer, 4
All the same birds are here in the yard.
