Four falcon day - 1/17/09

Tomorrow is the first anniversary of my one and only day with four falcon species.

While driving from Bloomington, IN, to Wheaton, IL, for a family gathering I saw:

* A Merlin perched in its regular spot in a dead tree on the north edge of the Indiana University cross country course.

* Several American Kestrels in both Indiana and Illinois.

* The University of Illinois campus Peregrine, while making a stop in Champaign-Urbana

* Highlight of the day was a Prairie Falcon! The bird was in western Iroquois County IL, which borders Newton and Benton counties in Indiana.
