60-75 Swainson'a Hawks in Borrego Springs

This evening, around 60-75 Swainson's Hawks descended into town. We believe that they are roosting at the Roadrunner Club or at the rear of the Date Farm. Unfortunately we may have a windy morning with a very early lift-off. If you are in town and would like to take a chance to see the hawks leaving the valley, I suggest you drive just north of The Springs RV Park to view the liftoff. I will probably be searching for the hawks before 7am. Normally lift-off takes place around 9am but tomorrow I wouldn't count on it. You can watch the youtube of the hawks from this evening:
