Gyr Falcon At Hawk Ridge; Hope

I just got news from Julie Oconnor, Volunteer Coordinator at Hawk Ridge, that they caught a Gyr Falcon which is highly unusual and the wrong direction for a bird I have seen in blazing cold winter conditions. This is a huge catch for Hawk Ridge and my guess is that some of you are quite aware of this. I hope this signals an irruption of Far North Raptors and not a bird distate for the arctic because of global warming. I am fearful that raptors, being near the top of food chains, will be the first birds to be impacted by a warming planet
