Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 6

We finally got some southwest flow to start off the week, and had our season daily high count of 334 on 4/19. It was one of those days when hawks were still flying into the evening, resulting in a 10-hour day at the watch. The remainder of the week saw winds out of the northwest, and eventually east, extremely gusty at times. But, it is the time of year when birds need to get to where they are going. So, we still had steady, if not high, counts for several of the days. What appears to be a local Northern Goshawk was seen a couple of times this week - always a fun sight. Not a lot of migration activity was seen for non-raptors, with the exception of Double-crested Cormorant.
