Hawkwatch, 29 October 2016

Raptors and non-raptors alike pushed through the skies today, many of them heading southwest into the southwesterly winds. Red-shouldered Hawks were the stars of today. Standalone kettles of Red-shouldered Hawks formed several time throughout the morning. The largest kettle (flock of raptors) seen contained nine Red-shouldered Hawks. A total of 84 Red-shouldered Hawks flew past the hawkwatch since this morning's sunrise!
