Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 6

Overall, this was a solid week at the Hawkwatch. Just a little light rain delayed the count on 4/20, otherwise we got in whole days of counting with sunny blue skies. The wind was definitely gusty at times, especially the strong south wind on 4/23, but hawks were moving through. 4/21 was especially good with 413. A pair of Sandhill Cranes were spotted on 4/21, and first-of-years included Common Loon, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and Blue-headed Vireo.
