Hawk watching on March 3, 2018

We had a beautiful spring day, with a good number of raptors flying, at the hawk watch site on the south side of the Mackinaw City Recreation building. Steve Baker and Ed Pike did the observations with help from Dave Mayberry. Four visitors were able to see a number of raptors at a distance including several Golden Eagles. Kevin Georg our spring counter arrived about noon and helped with the count. We counted from 10 am to 3 pm with most of the raptors moving north from about 11:30 till 2:30. We had a great count for early March:
Golden Eagle 10
Bald Eagle 2
Red-shouldered Hawk 3
Red-tailed Hawk 18
Rough-legged Hawk 3 (2 light& 1 dark)
Sunday, March 4, looks like it could be a good day to see raptors.
