Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 5

Updated: Apr 26

Let’s count some hawks! After yet another rain-out on the first day of the week, the weather finally turned in our favor. Birds that had been clearly backed up for a week or more were on the move. Our new high count day for the season came on 4/13 with 686 hawks, which included a nice push of Ospreys, Northern Harriers, and Broad-winged Hawks. With continued warm days and westerly and southerly winds, more good days of hawkwatching were had throughout the week. Tree Swallow and Double-crested Cormorant numbers are increasing, and we had our first Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers of the season.
