Foggy beginnings, great kids visit

image image imageApril fools day began with early morning fog all around the Mackinac Straits . The bridge and the birds were totally obscured till the sun burned off the fog and melted the fresh 3 inches of overnight snow.  It was a good day for Red-tails and Turkey Vultures as their numbers seem to be increasing every day. The real highlight of the day was a visit to the hawk watch by a very enthusiastic group of home schoolers. Dave Mayberry did a stellar job of explaining the wonders of raptor migration and basic identification information .  A few Red-tails and Turkey Vultures circled low over head for great views but most birds rode thermals to great heights  before crossing the Straits.  I hope Dave’s efforts spark an interest in hawk migration in a few of  these students.
