Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 4

We only had 3 full days of counting, plus 1 partial day mid-week due to more poor weather. We can’t remember the last time we have gone 3 days in a row with no count conducted. Fortunately, some calm winds on 4/8 (Eclipse Day!) and 4/9 brought us some birds. A total of 330 raptors were counted on those 2 days. Birds that were moving during the eclipse were noted to be flying lower with the drop in temperature. Turkey Vultures were still pushing through in good numbers, Osprey numbers picked up, and our first Broad-winged Hawk was tallied on 4/10. One more Peregrine Falcon was added to the list. First of years included Barn Swallow and Pine Warbler.
