Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 5

This week started out quite well with a southwesterly flow, resulting in 2 good days of counting. One complete rainout occurred on 4/13, but otherwise we got in all but one observation hour. The second half of the week was a little slower with some gusty NW winds shifting eventually to the east. We are getting an uptick in Osprey and Broad-winged Hawk numbers, but still awaiting that “bid day”. New birds included Peregrine Falcon, Yellow-rumped Warbler, and Belted Kingfisher.
