Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 7

The beginning of this week was mostly pleasant, with light winds and tolerable temperatures. A rain/drizzle pattern developed for the last 3 days, however, making things uneventful on the mountain. We lost a few hours of counting time, and a grand total of 7 birds were counted 4/30 through 5/2. Fortunately, one of the best days was Saturday for Feathers Over Freeport, making for a great Hawkwatch workshop with close birds overhead. Otherwise, really not much of note to report this week. With this weather blocking pattern, we hope to see another nice push of birds next week – more Broad-winged Hawks to come, especially immatures.
