  • I'm looking forward to a successful completion of the local Christmas count season. That said, I'm also looking for someone to take over compiling duties for one or both counts.

While observing the Peregrine soaring directly overhead, I noticed just ahead of the Peregrine a single much larger but similar in-shape bird. The birds were too high to gain any detail, but stayed in view for nearly 20 seconds as they leisurely soared eastward. The larger...
