Hawk Count – Sept. 26

Today Ed Pike counted the Raptors migrating south across the Straits. It was another sunny and hot day with light winds. Around 1 pm the winds died down and the temperature jumped 10 to 15 degrees to 89 degrees. Thankfully the wind started again from the west at 2 pm and it cooled down slightly. There was a slow but steady stream of Raptors today although few Buteo’s were present. We had our first Golden Eagle today which was nice to see. The list is below.
Turkey Vulture 1
Osprey 5
Golden Eagle 1
N. Harrier 2
Sharp-shinned hawk 81
