There were plenty of hawks and harriers out on Sunday, in the farm area just south of SR 2.  We were fortunate enough to have a couple cross the road while scanning the fields for prey allowing for some nice photo opportunities.

Dale,  good stuff  ...maybe you could get them to send some down to Wood County?
 
A visit a couple weeks ago to Freyman Rd area of south Wood County, an area often very good for winter raptors, did turn up a lone harrier but nothing else.  Cricket Frog Cove often hosts a winter N Shrike; none could be found that day.

Sorry they haven't gone further south Paul. I thought it unusually active and it may have been because dead mice were turning up. We saw about a half dozen just lying on the road as we drove around, apparently untouched by scavengers. It was very cold and that may have been what exacerbated their demise. If the same was in the field they would have been easy pickings for a hungry hawk and we did see them dropping down
