Several people feel Howe may support the largest number of raptors during the winter in the state of Idaho or even the nation. In 30 minutes I counted 78 hawks and 12 eagles. The most numerous were the Roughlegged hawk that have just migrated from the Artic Circle. Here is a beautiful one working a hay field.
Golden eagles were perched on hay stacks and sprinkler lines while Bald eagles were feeding on a few sheep and antelope carcusses around the area.
Herds of antelope filled the fields along the road. I estimate there were about 1000 pronghorns in a nine mile stretch.
A great way to end another wild day in Idaho.
