Today I'm posting an array of raptors that I encountered on my trip across Louisiana. I was amazed that there were so many. No exaggeration a hawk on a telephone pole every 1/4 mile. Thankfully there was little traffic on route so I could, if the spirit moved me, pull the car off for a quick photo. I'm really happy about the Sharpie as I have not been able to photograph one previously. I now have a much clearer view on the differences between a Cooper's and a Sharpie. I watched a North Harrier take a black water snake right in front of me. I froze because it happened so fast and didn't get the picture. I luv this birding game. Enjoy, I did!
