Hawks bounce back

It wasn't exactly epic, but the raptor flight did pick up a bit after yesterday's low point of 14. Today, the count reached 82, with a couple of Osprey, 2 Bald Eagles, 2 Northern Harriers, 23 Sharp-shinned Hawks, a juvenile Northern Goshawk, 25 Broad-winged Hawks, 19 Red-tailed Hawks, 7 Rough-legged Hawks, and 1 American Kestrel.

Based on current weather forecasts, it seems reasonable to expect this upward trend to continue over the next few days. For Monday, sunny weather and light winds are forecast - which will be nice with or without birds - but the best hawk days are likely to be Tuesday and Wednesday.
