Hawk Count is off to a slow start

We are hoping for another exciting season.  Kevin Georg is back and we have started counting.   The weather is not cooperating and it is a slow start and may not pick up until late week with rainy weather predicted for most of the week.

On Sat. March 5, the first day of counting Kevin counted 5 adult Bald Eagles migrating north and 2 Red-shouldered Hawks.

On Sun. March 6 it was a cloudy day with southwest winds.  The clouds started to break up in the mid afternoon and finally late afternoon a single immature (probable 3rd year) Bald Eagle was observed migrating north across the Straits.

This is our earliest start so we know things will be picking up shortly.
