Bradbury Mountain Hawkwatch: Week 8

Overall, this week was fairly pleasant, with the exception of a loss of 5 hours of count time on 5/5 due to rain and mist. Even days that seemed kind of slow ended up with 40-90 birds. The 12th Peregrine Falcon of the season that was seen on 5/4 marked a new season high for the count site. Other birds are building in numbers, including several warblers. Three Sandhill Cranes were spotted on 5/8. Only a few days left, and we are still awaiting a possible push of immature Broad-winged Hawks. Or, perhaps a kite…
