Hawk Watch, May 6

Today was mind-boggling slow considering the nice weather. The wind was gusty at times, but averaged a reasonable speed and was from the north which is usually a decent direction for raptors. It was also pretty warm, wind aside. Yet, we only managed 34 birds total….

Tomorrow’s forecast shows similar conditions, but with a northwesterly wind. Hopefully that makes the difference and we’ll actually get some birds.

Turkey Vulture – 9
Bald Eagle – 2
Northern Harrier – 1
Sharp-shinned Hawk – 12
Broad-winged Hawk – 2
Red-tailed Hawk – 6
Golden Eagle – 1
American Kestrel – 1
