Spring migration trickles along

buy viagra in hull http://restartafrica.org/page/6/ Spring migration has been trickling along.  On March 17 we had a good day with 40 Bald Eagles and 28 Golden Eagles and a few other Hawks for a total of 74 for the day.  Other days there have been just a few Raptors migrating.  On March 19 the first Turkey Vulture appeared.  Daily numbers can be seen at Hawkcount.org.

On March 24 the first Am. Robins, Common Grackles and Redwinged Blackbirds were seen at the Hawk Watch Site and the first E. Meadowlark landed in a tree and sang for the hawk watchers.

Hopefully this next week, with the predicted sunny weather more Raptors will be migrating.

Another quiet day at the Hawk Watch

A couple more days with mostly sunny skies and moderate winds. However the raptors have not made it this far north and the skies are mostly empty. A couple of local Bald Eagles make an appearance during the day and then move back to the south. Maybe there will be some migration in front of the storm system moving in on Saturday night.

2019 Hawk Count begins

The spring 2019 Hawk Count officially began March 5. With partly sunny skies we had hoped for a few raptors, especially a Golden Eagle or 2 and some Red-tails. It seems migration is somewhat behind this year. With 1 to 2 feet of snow on the ground and daytime temperatures in the teens and nights around zero there seems to be little interest in migration yet.

Hopefully with sunny skies and slightly warmer temps some Raptors will be thinking about migration on Friday and Saturday
