Don't Let Timothy Krause Win! Remember that announcement heading from a couple of weeks ago? Did anyone listen? NO!! The Bethany Hawkwatch counted 2,456 raptors migrating through the Minnesota River Valley during International Hawk Migration Week (17-25 September 2016). If we had counted 9 more raptors, Abe Faugstad would have been our winner. Instead, Timothy Krause won for the 3rd straight year! Timothy's guess: 2,428 raptors (only 28 birds off). Congratulations Timothy!
