Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 7

The weather continues to be our foe this season with 2 full day rainouts and more easterly winds. We managed to pull out some migrants on 3 of the days this week where we broke 100. The best day of the week was 5/2 with 285 on a finally warm day with some northwest winds. But, this is a far cry from what we should be seeing by this point of the season. These storm tracks with southeast to northeast winds are keeping our count low by shunting birds inland. Tree Swallows and Double-crested Cormorants were observed in decent numbers this week, with a very noteworthy 1455 cormorants on 4/29.
