Very Windy Today With An Early Departure-Sunday March 30, 2014

Wes, assisted by Hal and Pam

Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-101

Hawks were on the move very early (6:45A). Migration was in progress when we arrived near the solar field. Hawks were moving low and sideways to the west. During the next 3 hours hawks struggled past the watch. This evening we said goodbye to Wes Hetrick and Pam Albers, both essential to the hawkwatch for their dedication. They are off to other birding experiences-until next year. Check out the youtube from yesterday:

Evening Watch:
For the first evening in a few weeks, we had no Swainson's Hawks at the evening site. Nine Turkey Vultures made an early appearance.

Hopefully we will have a surprise tomorrow with arrivals from other roost sites.
