We had an excellent start to our season today with 265 birds heading
south. Excellent visibility with temps ranging from the low 50's to high
60's under cloudless skies and no significant winds. Highlights included 2
Broad-winged Hawks spotted by Peter and a possible 3rd by Judy ending the
day with paired up Golden Eagles. Many raptors were very distant to the
east with afternoon birds passing high overhead leaving the crew in need of
chiropractic ministrations. We extended the count an extra hour going till
6:00. We enjoyed many passerines species as well but perhaps someone else
with post because I'm late and it's getting tired.
