Local scientists say increased sightings of birds such as the red-tailed hawk and American kestrel in local wilderness parks are an indication that raptors are rebounding from the devastation that burned almost 90 percent of Whiting Ranch and Limestone Canyon following the 2007 Santiago fires.  The raptor nesting survey also confirmed that a resident bald eagle pair again successfully reared two young this year.  Read more about the study at The Orange County Register.
Happy Birding!
