Subject: [SJBIRDS] Swainson's Hawk Kettle
I was just driving south today (4/20/17) on I-5 having just past the HWY-12 interchange at 1:00 p.m. and noticed a large kettle of Swainson's Hawks (approx.40) circling just to the north and south of the White Slough Water Treatment Plant. It appeared farmers were harvesting the wheat fields NW of the plant. I could see birds landing in an earlier harvested field just south of the plant. Unfortunately prior commitments prevented me pulling over to get a better look and count.

Happy Birding!
