Joe, assisted by Judy, Herb and Hal

Migration Today:
Swainson's Hawks-172
Turkey Vultures-23

Light wind and 90% clouds with temps in the 60's-70 today. Swainson's Hawks were in the Date Farm and on Mesquite dunes east of the Date Farm early this morning. At 8:40A some of the hawks began to lift-off. Kettles formed over Ellis Farm and to the south. The hawks provided great views of kettling and streaming until 9:20A. Check out the youtube at:

Evening Watch:
Only 2 Swainson's were counted this evening.

Not much to predict unless we have a surprise tomorrow. NW wind at 8mph predicted. Hawks will be up between 8 and 9A.
