Early migration continues

With continued spring like weather Steve Baker and I checked out Mackinaw City area thinking some raptors might follow the front that went through. After the clouds moved out, fog lifted and the sun started shining to the south I headed for Mackinaw. On arrival at 1 pm the area was fogged in; just before 2 pm the fog started clearing out and the sun began to shine. Two Hawks (probably Rough-legged) were seen but disappeared into the fog before giving an opportunity to ID them. Then it finished clearing and in the next 45 minutes 5 light phase and 1 dark phase Rough-legged Hawks moved up and went across the Straits. Then no raptors were seen till we quite at 3:30 pm.

Still really great seeing the Rough-legged moving, beautiful birds.
