Hawk Watch, May 5

Another nice day, but not a lot of birds. It was tough viewing today as birds were going very high in an entirely blue sky. Despite partially east winds, most raptors were crossing the Straits without much hesitation. Tomorrow’s stronger, northwesterly winds might produce a nice movement since that direction is more favorable for crossing the Straits.
