April 3-Only a Few Swainson's Trickling In

Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-14
Turkey Vultures-7

Some clouds, warm (70's) and light wind. Most of the hawks kettled up from Ellis Farm. The TV's came out of the Date Farm.

As of today I will report every few days unless there is a large number of Swainson's Hawks arriving.

Evening Watch:
Sixteen Swainson's Hawks and 13 TV's came in around 6:15P. It appears that the SW's put down in Ellis Farm and the TV's at the Date Farm. The wind has picked up and should continue through tomorrow.

Prediction for Tomorrow:
Once again the raptors will move early if the winds continues into the morning hours. The day count site on Di Giorgio Rd is probably the best spot to view the hawks.
