This was my first participation in Audubon's Christmas Bird Count and we had a 15-mile square
area near Sooner Lake.  We observed a number of beds, including Red-tailed, Harlan's, Cooper's   Hawks, a Prairie Falcon, Kestrels, Bald Eagles, numerous passerines, Canada Geese, an assortment of ducks, etc.  There will be more coming up on Saturday, so do stay tuned.
