The Mendota Fire Tower Hawk Watch starts 8/30/2010 with the first full day of 
observation. This year we are linked with the Hawk Migration Association of 
North America and will be posting our hourly observations on their website each 
day. Our site profile is at the following link:
Or it can be reached through hawkcount.org and Mendota Fire Tower under 
hawkwatch sites. This site includes all of this years data plus history, and 
directions to the fire tower. If you have further questions please contact me 
via email at opiehunter@xxxxxxxxx or call cell # 540-250-2516.
Te hawkwatch is sponsored by the Bristol Bird Club. Everyone is welcome to come 
join us at the hawkwatch. It is isolated and there is a strenuous 25 minute 
hike to reach the tower. Bring binoculars, water, snacks, raingear and a chair. 
 No experience necessary. We will be glad to train.
I went up to the tower today for a few hours. I observed 3 Broad-winged Hawks 
and 1 Osprey.
