So I suck at computers...Anyway John Vooys and I had a superb hike on Cheam. Warm and pleasant, not too birdy.
A Ruffed Grouse Am Robin 1 Varied Thrush Many, many Pine Siskins Heard some Red Crossbills Several Golden-crowned Kinglets 1 American Pipit, 2 Ravens A group of out of range birds we suspect were Horned Larks...not too birdy, then a juvenile Broad-winged Hawk circled around below us, awesome bird especially as I have only had a less then stellar siting in Ft St John. Awesome to see one in my own mountains! An Adult Redtail then showed up. Next a gorgeous very light Rough-legged Hawk drifted along over the ridge, came right overhead. Then a small accipiter dove down behind a near by ridge. Next another Red Tailed Hawk drifted by and finally an adult Golden Eagle came by right overhead! It seems like this was a great raptor day...on our way down we saw 2 adult Golden Eagles, perhaps making 3 individuals. *Also Pacific Wren
