Ahead of the warm air and possible storms due to arrive tomorrow,  birds were 
moving on the good lift from the strong sun today, March 8th,  at College 
Creek Hawkwatch on the James River near Williamsburg. Fred  Blystone, Bill 
Williams and I watched as 62 birds crossed the river from about  10-12:30.
There was great variety, too, with 7 species in one 40 minute span.  Totals 
were 3 Black Vultures, 40 Turkey Vultures, 8 Ospreys, 4 immature Bald  Eagles, 
1 Cooper's Hawk, 2 Red-shouldered Hawks and 4 Red-tailed Hawks. The  season 
total is 225.
A few Tree Swallows and Fish Crows were the only other migrants.
