PNWRM Observations of the Week -- Sep 22-28

The final complete week of September is over and so comes the last three observations for the month. Let's go on with it and see what has been submitted over the week that we should appreciate.

I think the third place spot goes to @umpquamatt for a dazzling photo of a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk in the Steen Mountains. These mountains in southeastern Oregon is one of the best places to hawk watch in our project's zone because it's a north to south isolated range which acts like a magnet to our fierce feathered friends. You can find all the photos to the observation in the link and congrats to the photographer.

Second spot goes to @kenchamberlain for this week. The one thing I've learned about this project is how many facial expressions Great Horned Owls process. In this outstanding photo, we now have a Great Horn who is seemingly winking. I'm just wondering why. Is he winking because the owl believes the observer would see the Broad-billed Hummingbird or he's trying to flirt with the observer.

And what I call the coolest observation of the week, goes to @guyincognito for the mesmerizing photo of a species that gets me every time, a Northern Saw-whet Owl. Spotted in Pend Oreille County, Washington, this bird was spotted as far north and east as possible in our project. As for the bird itself, just look at that face and tell me it doesn't make you go "awwwww". Thanks to all the photographers who contributed to the project. If this is your first time seeing this project, I'm still looking for committers to find some awesome raptors. Good luck and let October be a good raptor month.
