      Greetings, 
      Today there continues to be a lot of birds migrating in the Nucla area.  I have attached a list for your info if interested.
      Most interesting note: a Wilson's Snipe was flushed under foot and a Peregrine Falcon gave chase.  The snipe quickly gained altitude and the falcon could not catch up.  One lucky snipe and still one hungry falcon!
      Coen and Brenda
