Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-49
Turkey Vultures-28

Clear sky with 70-80's temps and calm wind. At 9:10 lift-off from the Date Farm. The hawks and vultures struggled to get some lift. They finally moved northwest probably picking up some movement near the mountains. Most moved out of the valley through Coyote Canyon. Twelve later Swainson's came very close to the hill.

Evening Watch:
At last report somewhere near 30 Swainson's flew into the Date Farm this evening.

Once again the air will be warm with little wind. Swainson's Hawks will lift-off between 8:45 and 9:30A again.
