Hawk Watch, May 13

I was thinking today could produce a nice movement due to the northwesterly wind direction and nice temperatures. Unfortunately an unexpected rain delayed the count for 2 hours, and things only picked up a little bit after it cleared. A good number of Turkey Vultures and Broad-wingeds passed by, but there were few other raptors.

Tomorrow’s conditions look similar, minus the rain.

Turkey Vulture – 66
Bald Eagle – 1
Northern Harrier – 1
Sharp-shinned Hawk – 4
Broad-winged Hawk – 103
Red-tailed Hawk – 9
