With winds blowing hard from the SSE at 25-30 knots, and gusts of higher velocity, I did not expect much today. Was I ever surprised!! There was no morning flight, BUT, 1,900 Tree Swallows and 750 Double-Crested Cormorants were certainly unexpected. I did have 1 Northern Harrier, 5 Sharp-Shinned Hawks, 1 Cooper's Hawk, 1Merlin, 1 Peregrine and 12 Turkey Vultures moving . Not too shabby, when you could actually lean into the wind and have it support you.
