April 18, 2009: Birding Braddock Bay, Island Cottage Woods (Greece), and Montezuma NWR Area

We birded several locations today. First a morning visit to the Braddock Bay Raptor Research, and the Owl Woods. We saw a Cooper's and Red-Tail banded but did not get photos. We found one Long Eared Owl in the woods. Then a lunch visit to Schaller's in nearby Greece, and a quick stop at the Island Cottage Woods there, which were productive! Then we drove east an hour to Montezuma NWR, for some more nice birding.
