Hawks in Borrego Springs

Today 118 Swainson's Hawks migrated from Borrego Springs. Tonight a large kettle of over 100 birds descended into the Elis farm on Borrego Valley Rd. Tomorrow with light winds we expect the hawks to first go out to feed before kettling up between 8 and 9:30am. A large number of caterpillars are now in several locations throughout the valley. We do not know where the hawks will feed. I suggest you go to the day count site 2.6 miles north of Palm Canyon Rd on DiGiorgio Rd to find the best location to view the hawks in the air.
