Discussion: The weather was warm, calm with wind picking up to 5 mph from the SE. The TV's roosted at the Date Farm and then moved to the Roadrunner. First liftoff was at 9:10A. Most of the TV's moved west then northwest through Coyote Canyon. The 2 Swainson's Hawks left the valley first.

Evening Watch: A blustery evening with brisk wind from the west. Three Swainson's Hawks and 11 TV's were spotted. The TV's remained in the sky most of the evening. Two of the Swainson's came into the Date Farm. The third SW put down at Ellis Farm.
