Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 3

This season has been all about the weather so far. The week was bracketed by rain and drizzle on the first day, and a snowy Nor’easter at the end. In between, conditions were not great for migration with some very gusty winds that started out from the NW, then shifted around to more easterly. By far the best day was 4/1 with a decent push of birds on southerly winds. Our first Ospreys and American Kestrels were seen on 3/31 and 4/1, respectively. A small group of Bohemian Waxwings alighted briefly at the summit on a couple of occasions, and the first Belted Kingfisher of the year was observed. 5 Sandhill Cranes were counted on 3/28.
