A Few Raptors Tuesday February 26, 2013

Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-3
Turkey Vultures-10

Today the sky was very clear. The first lift off was at 8:25A with a single Harrier. The SW's began to kettle up at 8:50A. Seven TV's joined the SW's. They all appeared to have roosted at the Date Farm or Roadrunner. 

The "Hill" pictured below is the official count site just south of Henderson Canyon Road and Di Giorgio Road. For two years now we have not had it plowed up. It still provides us with a slight rise in the surrounding area. 

Evening Watch:
No raptors observed migrating into the valley this evening.

Hopefully some raptors have entered the valley unannounced. The wind should be light tomorrow with warming temperatures.
