BEKI passes

Weird weather today with lots of intermittent rain showers and strong winds. But despite all that 35ish songbirds were caught along with 51 raptors at the main blind including a Kestrel, a recaptured Merlin, and 4 or 5 Harriers (who really seem to start showing up when the rain starts up). Two highlights of the day: a stooping Bald Eagle getting the adrenaline going when it came in for a lure, peeling off at about 15ft from it, and getting a couple of looks from a Belted Kingfisher that was flying by, why it was interested in our lures, I cannot say...
