Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 3

What a dismal week. Two weather systems, including one low pressure storm that spun off the coast for 2 days, cancelled the count entirely for 3 full days. With one other partial day, we only got in 3 complete days of observation. 4/4 was the best day with light north/northeast winds and sunshine to give us 22 migrating hawks (still mostly Turkey Vultures). Our first Osprey passed through on 4/1. As expected, not much else seemed to be moving either.
