Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 3

Winds started out with chilly southerly seabreezes at the beginning of the week, then shifted to a more northerly/northwesterly direction for the second half. Just a little bit of precipitation kept us off the mountain for a few hours. One more push of Turkey Vultures on 3/31 gave us a 142 bird day. An immature Northern Goshawk on 4/4 added some excitement. We also had a few really nice looks at male Northern Harriers this week too. Surprisingly, not many non-raptors were moving. One good flight of American Robins, and our first-of year Eastern Phoebe were highlights.
