Some TV's On The Move- March 1, 2013

Herb Stone assisted by Rose Leong

Migration Today:
20 TV's
1 Red-tailed Hawk

Eight Turkey Vultures began to lift off at 9:15A from the Date Farm. A juvenile Red-tailed Hawk moved through at 10A. At 10:15A 12 TV's were spotted and streamed north. It looks like a few Swainson's Hawks are hanging around the valley. Some Grey-bird Grasshoppers have been spotted in the area. Perhaps the hawks have found some food. 

Evening Watch:
11 TV's
2 Swainson's Hawks-probably the same birds observed earlier in the day

Continued warm with light wind tomorrow. Expect the TV's to kettle up around 9A. Perhaps the Swainson's Hawks will make an appearance as well.
