Is Newman back at Great Spirit Bluff?

02/15/19: Unbanded falcon at Great Spirit Bluff

Is Newman back at Great Spirit Bluff? It could be! The first image was captured by Explore user Bookmom and appears to show the same thing (although we can’t see his entire nape). The second image is from last year and clearly shows the distinctive field marks on his nape.  Like Newman, this falcon is also unbanded.  You can see a big spot on the back of his head, but if you look closely, you can see what looks like a similar

01/08/19: NestFlix Round-up for Decorah, Decorah North, the Flyway, and GSB!

A Reflection and a Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving 2018

November 23rd would have been Bob Anderson’s birthday. I assume that our friend and founder would finally have achieved his dream of retirement – or at least semi-retirement – and be busy with his book by now. Given the thankful nature of the season, it seems like a good time to take stock of where the Raptor Resource Project has been, where it plans on going, and what I have to be thankful for. For those of you who don’t
