Subject: Raptor migration in Cowley County, 21 September
Despite the southerly winds yesterday morning, there was a pretty good hawk
migration east of Arkansas City in southern Cowley County. From 11 a.m. to
just before noon, I saw 9 species of raptors, almost all flying south,
along a half-mile stretch of road near Camp Horizon: Turkey Vultures (20),
Mississippi Kites (3), Cooper's, Red-tailed, and Broad-winged hawks (2
each, all adults), Swainson's Hawk and Osprey (1 each, flying almost side
by side), Peregrine Falcon (1 adult and possibly a second bird 40 minutes
later), and American Kestrel (1 adult male).
