Heads up for Broad-Winged Hawk migration

Heads up for Broad-Winged Hawk migration
By – 5:44 pm
Hi, all.  I’ve been following the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory ( Golden Gate Raptor Observatory Migrant Raptor Watch ) as they monitor the Marin headlands for southbound raptors.  Today they reported their first of season Broad-winged Hawk.  I think it takes two or three days for a migrant hawk to get here from the Bay Area.  So those interested might consider their spots, this weekend and beyond.  Known areas are the Fort Rosecrans area and Mount Soledad.  I think Paul Lehman has suggested that mountain viewpoints might also be worthy in this regard.  It might be another few weeks before peak, though.  Anyone who’s interested in company for hawk-watching of this sort may contact me privately.  It would be a state & county lifer for me   .   .   .Cheers,  Tuck RussellHillcrest
