Today's Detroit Hawkwatch was spectacular with big Broad-winged Hawk kettles and streams from 11 am to after 4 pm. I had to tear myself from the Hawkwatch at 4:40 pm because many Broad-wings were still streaming. The big puffy white and grey clouds made viewing easy. Broad-wings streamed above our heads or to the near north most of the day.
Tuesday's weather should be a carbon copy of today, NE, ENE, and E winds, partly sunny, barometer steady and high. Check the Detroit Hawkwatch for today's count at http://detroitriverhawkwatch.org/ and click on "Day's Summary." The official counters were very busy, hard at work all day. They barely took breaks.
Let's hope for a repeat of today's big flight tomorrow!
