Hawk Watch, May 14

Today very narrowly avoided being my lowest raptor count of the season. The weather was nice, but there was a gusty NW wind. I suspect the wind was a big factor in the suppressed migration. In the end, I managed 28 birds total.

Turkey Vulture – 18
Bald Eagle – 1
Sharp-shinned Hawk – 4
Broad-winged Hawk – 4
Red-tailed Hawk – 1
