A raptor migration: 36 hawks, 9 Turkey Vultures, plus 10 Ravens and perhaps 7 crows. We haven't ever seen a migration like this at our house. 210 Sandhill Cranes. A large contingent of Robins has moved in - perhaps to the dismay of our territorial Townsend's Solitaires. So has a flock of Wild Turkeys. Total of 530 individuals

Anecdotes:
Excellent pot luck.
