Another Surprise Migration Today-Tuesday March 25, 2014

Steve assisted by Wes, Pam and Rose

Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-67
Turkey Vultures-5

Calm wind, sunny and hot today. Lift-off at 8:50A from Henderson Canyon Rd near the count site. More SW's in small kettles began to arrive from an area southeast of Ellis Farms and the Date Farm. Also seen from the watch site was a Prairie Falcon and Kestrel carrying a snake.

Evening Watch:
We observed only 1 Swainson's Hawk this evening. The wind (20mph) from the west made watching very difficult. The next few days should produce some big hawk numbers.

Prediction: Not much to predict unless several SW's came in late.
