drum roll please... 680 total birds.
Sorry on that one Unidentified Falcon, I'll try harder next time.
Big thank you to Ken, Jason, and David Mahan for their help spotting today.


  1. Wow! I thought 310 might have been an April Fool's joke, but 680!

    Wish I could make it out there. Maybe next year...


  2. It was our first time to witness the Hawk migration and what a day!!!! The sky was filled with birds!! It was totally awesome!! Thank you James, Ken and Jason for sharing your expertise.
