Hawk Count for Sept. 21

Today Ed Pike and Sue Stewart observed and counted Raptors crossing the Straits. It was very warm with a lite wind from the south and the Straits were very hazy, which slowed the Raptors from crossing. When they did cross they were very high, barely visible to the naked eye. Can’t beat the warm weather but it certainly has slowed migration. Our list is below:
Turkey Vulture 21
Sharp-shinned Hawk 50
Bald Eagle 22
Broad-winged Hawk 9
Red-tailed Hawk 3
Am. Kestrel 3
Peregrine Falcon 1
Unidentified Falcon 1

Monarch Butterfly 14
