Over 150 Swainson’s Hawks in Borrego Springs

6:41 pm

This evening over 150 Swainson’s Hawks entered Borrego Springs. Tomorrow with a light wind the hawks will begin to migrate between 8:30 and 9am. Best viewing probably from the evening site on Borrego Valley Rd 1.8 miles north of Palm Canyon Drive or on DiGorgio Rd outside of the Springs RV Park. At least 50 Turkey Vultures are also in the area. Each evening we meet on Borrego Valley Rd at 4:30-5pm to watch for incoming hawks. An ALERT goes out to over 500 when 100 or more hawks enter the valley. To be included in the ALERT. Send me an email. Raptorhal3@…. The official count site is 2.8 miles north of Palm Canyon Drive. As a bonus, you can check out the flower field on Henderson Rd. The flowers are now beginning to peak.
