Derby Hill Bird Obserrvatory
It was just a perfect day to sit on a high bluff above Lake Ontario. So when the winds shifted a little and came off the lake, it pushed the birds south and the official counter and most of the observers went to the other site about half a mile away from the lake. We decided to stay put for awhile even though there weren't many birds. We enjoyed our picnic lunch, I had a banjo and played some tunes and Connie even finished a book she's been slogging through. We were rewarded with an Osprey that dove into the lake right behind that tree. Then the real reward came when we moved to the other site and witnessed swarms of raptors coming our way.
