Hawk Count Sept. 9

Today Steve Baker and I were at Point LaBarbe from 10 am till 2:30 pm. The winds were light from the east with mostly clear skies. With the SE wind a nice cumulus cloud formed over Point LaBarbe with some clouds to the northwest. These clouds helped with picking out raptors moving. While not a lot there was a steady movement of raptors moving south. They were all moving very high, barely visible with the naked eye. A total of 60 raptors were counted. The list is below.
Turkey Vulture 18
Sharp-shinned 10
Bald Eagle 5 adult and 1 Imm.
Red-shouldered Hawk 2
Broad-winged Hawk 10
Red-tail 2
Buteo sp. 3
Am. Kestrel 2
Merlin 1
Falcon sp. 4
Monarch Butterfly 1
