March 3,4, 2017-Hawks Are Trickling Through and Feeding

March 3-Rose
March 4-Rose

March 3-3 Swainson's Hawks
March 4-17 Swainson's Hawks

Today, March 4, hawks were aerial feeding on flying ants. They spent more than an hour very close to the alternative count site on Di Giorgio Rd just south of Henderson Canyon Rd.

Evening Watch:
At least 37 Swainson's Hawks flew low to the Date Farm area. They may have been feeding in fields, although no caterpillars have been observed yet. Flowers are increasing in numbers and we expect caterpillars soon.

Unfortunately high wind is predicted early tomorrow so lift-off could be just after sunup.
