First 3-digit Peregine Days of 2015
Single day 3-digit Peregrine Falcon counts are not uncommon at the Florida Keys Hawkwatch, but they have been relatively delayed this 2015 fall season (see the chart below). We finally experienced the first for 2015 in recent days, with 102 Peregrines counted on 10/05/15 and an excellent 233 on 10/06/15. We hope this is only the beginning of the falcon show. We also have a new single day record for Bald Eagles, with 8 counted on 10/06.
