Project Noah has recently increased the boundaries of the mission "Raptors of Colorado" to include all of North America, and is now called (drumroll please!) "Raptors of North America". I would love it if you would consider adding this and any other raptor spottings (birds of prey) to the following:
Thank you!

Thank you so much harsuame, KarenL., ChristyH. and KimC.!!! Kim we have so many Owls up here but unfortunately they usually don't come out until well after dark making taking their pictures almost impossible without special equipment. This fellow stuck around our area for 7-10 days and was the first I'd seen out during daylight hours though I've heard them at night. You're right. They're sound is eerie but beautiful and is usually heard on nights with a full moon and calm skies with no or little wind making it even a bit more eerie. :-)))
