Tom Armour and I were finally rewarded, over the weekend, for our patience and perserverance over the past 2 weeks, at College Creek Hawkwatch, when there have been few birds and mostly poor weather for migrating. The total for April 3 & 4, despite high winds and cold temperatures, was 139 and was, as usual, mostly Turkey Vultures, in some of their impressive gliding formations of 5 or more birds. The largest flock was 20. A few immature Bald Eagles have been on the move, lately, along with Ospreys, a few Northern Harriers, Sharp-shinneds and an American Kestrel yesterday. Oddly, no Red-taileds for more than a week. Brian Taber Coastal VA Wildlife Observatory You are subscribed to VA-BIRD.
