Subject: [AZNMbirds] SEAZ: Tubac Hawk Watch 03/09/17

Ron Morriss Park, Tubac, AZ March 9, 20217
8:00am - 2:00pm

First big organic crowd at the park this morning including a party of 8 who made the long haul from Sierra Vista.
Our best feeder count was 50 birders.

Turkey Vultures started at 8:55. A “kettle” of 4 Black Hawks rose at 9:05. Most Black Hawks preferred the highway line to the
west today.

The Sierra Vista cabal, scanning until the very end of their visit spotted a Black Hawk as they were packing
up their cars for their return trip.

A couple of successful river Trogon searchers stopped by and we added Mark and Molly to the list of birders who saw their
first Santa Cruz County Harris Hawk at the watch.

Loving those reports Black Hawk sightings from “up north” in Tucson.
