E-mails from Rich Fridell (24 Apr 2008):


I hope everyone is enjoying the spring. Migration seems to be in full spring with many new arrivals. This afternoon (4/24) I photographed a Zone-tailed Hawk along the Santa Clara River on the Shivwits Reservation (Washington County). I watched the hawk for nearly an hour as it moved along the river
and nearby bluffs from the Shem Bridge upstream to nearly the northern Shivwits boundary. I managed to get some photos and I will send a few to Milt for use by the records committee and to post as 'hotline photos'. Also there has been a Zone-tailed Hawk along the lower end of the Oak Grove Road
(mostly in the vicinity of the old gravel pit); it has been seen fairly regularly since late March...

Enjoy the spring,
