Hawk Watch, May 4

The weather was quite nice today with calm winds and temps in the 50s. The day started with a good Broad-winged Hawk push in the second hour but the momentum did not carry through the rest of the day. There was still a steady stream of birds throughout the day and a nice variety, at least. It was a decent falcon day for us, with both Peregrines and American Kestrels moving through.
