Hawk count for spring 2018

Hello all
The Offical Hawk Count starts on March 5, although the weather is not predicted to be conducive for migrating raptors.
Steve Baker and I have done some observations on days that look good in the last week. On Wed. Feb. 28 we counted our first Golden Eagle. Today with what appeared to be good weather for migration we again did observations from 10am till 3pm; we counted 6 Golden Eagle, 3 Bald Eagle, 1 Red-shouldered Hawk, 6 Red-tailed Hawk, and 1 (dark) Rough-legged Hawk. Made for a good day in early March.
Hoping for more Golden Eagles on Sat.
