I really can’t say that it was a terribly exciting morning on the Greenbelt today. The Osprey was not in sight; Not a great number of ducks were visible; Not a whole lot of Flickers and no geese. But there were Cormorants and then these California Quail that made an appearance out of the under brush. There were four of them.
But I did hear from Robert Mortensen, albeit indirectly, about his new adventure of the Great Kestrel Count 2011. Here is some information for you if you want to participate. Keep Looking Up!

To help celebrate the ABA bird of the year, the American Kestrel, and to invite others to join the wonderful world of birding, I have organized a fun and simple event called “The Great Kestrel Count 2011”. It’s free and anybody can participate. It will be held over the long Labor Day weekend, from Friday, Sept 2nd through Monday, Sept 5th.
