Borrego Valley Hawkwatch Thursday Feb. 16, 2012-No apparent Raptors this evening

Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-3
Turkey Vultures-23

All of the migrants moved in a NW direction. There are still several Mountain Bluebirds foraging across from the day site on DiGiorgio. The weather today was partly to mostly cloudy in the low 60's. A very light Krider's Redtail Hawk was observed in Palm Canyon Today.

Evening Watch:
No apparent migration in the valley this evening. Over 350 Ravens are using the date farm roost site. Our first Robin of the year perched across the street from the watch.

With the absence of migrating hawks this evening we do not expect many raptors tomorrow. However from past experience, we have been surprised.
