So, on the way down the Big Fly (how many birds seen on your flight) was a big bust for me (and not just because my seat number was 36D (ba da ching). I left while it was still dark, had an aisle seat and the person who had the window seat plastered their body in front of the window so I couldn't see out of it anyway. Ah well.
We'll see what happens on the flight back.
I missed raptors on Friday however I did see an accipiter yesterday--finally a Cooper's hawk. So instead of trying to see a raptor every day this year, I'm just going to see how long a stretch I can see a raptor a day.
Ah, my flight's boarding, gotta go.
