At 10:10 AM a lone Sandhill Crane flew over the Hawkwatch, and I wanted to get the word out so that those downstream can be on the lookout tomorrow. A rough count of Raptors was 214, including, once again, many more Coopers Hawks than Sharp-shinned. The morning flight was very good but by 1 PM had petered down to almost nothing and we had only 3 migrators between 2 and 3 PM. Pics of the crane, however bad, to come later.
