Hawk Watch, May 27

Today was the warmest day I’ve ever experienced in Mackinaw City, as far as I can recall. It was in the 70s most of the day with a light breeze. These conditions managed to produce the second best Broad-winged Hawk day of the season, thus far. It was relieving to see that there are still birds on the move. In past years, the hawk watch has had multiple day of 1000+ Broad-winged Hawks, but I have yet to break 1000 in a day.

Turkey Vulture – 48
Bald Eagle – 2
Sharp-shinned Hawk – 1
Broad-winged Hawk – 568
Red-tailed Hawk – 13
