Hawkwatch, 14 November 2016

The south breezes created a headwind for migrating birds today. Early morning pushes of American Robins and Yellow-rumped Warblers were seen throughout the sky. One of the most noteworthy numbers of the day was a massive Common Grackle flock of about 400 birds. The mid-day hours provided good conditions for raptors to fly through.

Tomorrow is calling for northwest winds with a slight chance of early morning rain. We'll have to see what these favorable winds bring. See you at the hawkwatch!
