Discovers new Adair Co. sights - Counting them birds!

New to them: The beautiful countryside around Cane Valley

Maury Lewis writes:
My husband and I went around Adair County today counting the birds. I couldn't take pictures. I was driving and he was writing and counting. He has really good sharp eyes.

Sometimes I could pull off the road to see better, but not close enough to take pictures.

We also saw some beautiful country we had not seen before around Cane Valley.

Here are some of the birds we saw:
3 Kestrels, 3 Redtail Hawks, 2 Rock Pigeons (in the Valley - not in town), 2 Turkey Vultures, 1 Kingfisher,1 Killdeer, 1 Eastern Meadowlark and a pair of Hooded Mergansers in a pond.
I can't wait till tomorrow to count around my house. -Maury Lewis
Thanks. It's always so much fun to find new roads in Adair County. I've driven the county exploring for new sights and I'm amazed at how frequently I have grand places, especially great vistas, I never knew existed. And yes, the bird count this year has been especially fun, with more and more people helping with their greater knowledge. -EW
