Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-2

Once again there was a fire along Borrego Springs Rd, just west of the Roadrunner Club. 2 Swainson's hawks were spotted near the smoke.

Evening Watch Saturday February 22:
Just got a report indicating that 46 Swainson's Hawks were in the Date Farm by 5PM.

Wind should be calm to very light tomorrow AM. Take off between 8:45 and 9A is likely from the Date Farm. Hopefully we will have a nice flight. Perhaps as many as 50 Swainson's.

Appears to be 34 Swainson's-So 50 Will Look Nice Tomorrow
