Warm day with temperatures reachign and rising above mid-20s to 30s. Cloud
cover changed throughout the day from a majority cloud cover to only partly
cloudy, visibility was good. Winds were mainly southwesterly which likely
hampered hawk migration.
Low raptor count day with no buteos reported and only one accipiter. All
three common falcons were reported (Peregrine, Merlin, Kestrel), although
in low numbers. Resident Eagles and Osprey were present. Low Turkey Vulture
movement also present.
Large numbers of migrating American Goldfinch were observed as well as
Cedar Waxwing. A diverse Warbler presence continues around the tower. Large
numbers of resident waterfowl present, with the continuing addition of
Winds are expected to be Easterly throughout the day with hopes of it going
North towards the afternoon. It is also expected to rain/storm in the
morning hours which also may impact the migration of hawks overheard.
However, rains are expected to stop towards noon where hopefully raptor
numbers will increase.
