Hawk Watch, May 18

Rain plagued the count today and I only managed a short watch in the morning and then again in the afternoon. A few birds came by in that time, at least. Most notable was a Peregrine Falcon flying north as I pulled in to start watching again after the rain subsided. Also of note was a Northern Mockingbird hanging around in the morning at our main watch site, behind the Recreation Center. Coincidentally, two days ago there were two Northern Mockingbirds at our other site in Darrow’s field.

Turkey Vulture – 2
Broad-winged Hawk – 17
Peregrine Falcon – 1
