I'm hopeful for some good birding this weekend. I think migration is finally kicking in, yesterday there was a family group of pelicans flying over the store and this morning as I woke up heard a warbler chipping outside my apartment windows.
Here is a story from the Homer News about their local "bird guy" who must help goshawks, great-horned owls, sharp-shins and merlins as his daily work duties. That would be an okay job for me. There are also some important tips on protecting your poultry and helping raptors.
