Subject: rough-legged hawk(no), killdeer

After work both yesterday and today between 5-6pm I went out to look for the
rough-legged hawk seen Sunday near Colbert. I wasn't able to find it after
searching along Holly Creek Church Road and Moores Lane, but I didn't have a
spotting scope and on Monday the rainy weather wasn't helpful. On today's
attempt I did see large numbers of killdeer among the many robins and
meadowlarks in the pasture directly across from the Holly Creek Baptist
Church. I counted 208 killdeer in one small area of the pasture. I've never
seen so many together like that. Is this an unusually high number?
