Hawk Watch, April 19 and 20

The 19th was the slowest day I’ve had yet this season. I figured it would’ve been pretty decent, but I guess the west winds were too strong. It was actually a better day for waterbirds at the hawk watch than raptors. I had more Common Loons than any raptor species and also had 10 Gadwall and 4 American Wigeon fly by.

April 20th was rained out. Hopefully that means Friday will be productive for migrants.

April 19

Turkey Vulture – 12
Bald Eagle – 1
Northern Harrier – 1
Sharp-shinned Hawk – 4
Red-shouldered Hawk – 1
Red-tailed Hawk – 4

Sandhill Crane – 1
Common Loon – 21
