Close Views of Swainson's Today

Dark Morph and Light Morph Swainson's Hawk's 3/9/12 
Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-17
Turkey Vultures-53

Clear, very calm, 60's to low 70's. Lift-off of Swainson's at 8:41A and 8:50A for the Turkey Vultures. The SW's took off from the date farm, the TV's from Roadrunner Club.

Evening Watch:
Lots of TV's coming to roost at the Date Farm this evening. Only 12 Swainson's were spotted coming in as well.

Prediction for Tomorrow:
The weather should remain calm until tomorrow evening. Clear skies and temperature in the mid-70's. Expect the Swainson's to lift-off between 8:30-9:15A. The TV's will follow. Again, a good location to be close to the raptors is the evening site on Borrego Valley Rd.
