A nice high sky today, but as usual nowadays, not a single raptor in sight any of the times I looked out. A big change from 15 years ago, when we still got kettles of Broad-wings mixed with Red-tails and the occasional vulture or “other”. I suppose I shouldn’t complain. We had a young Peregrine hang out for the better part of an hour the other day, perched on a rung up the big smokestack and eyeing the local pigeon and starling smorgasbrot. And, this morning, I had a rather late and chilly Red Admiral hanging out on the steps when I left for work. That has to count for something.
