Swainson’s Hawks Borrego Springs

Swainson’s Hawks Borrego Springs

By {authorlink} – 8:35 pm

Today 291 Swainson’s Hawks migrated. This evening over 200 landed in the Date Farm. Tomorrow with calm to very light wind, the hawks will most likely begin to kettle after 8:30am. It’s hard to predict the direction of flight because food, crane flies and grasshoppers are still available. The concentration of the crane flies today was at the intersection of Henderson and Borrego Valley Rd. The hawks in flight, fed in that area today. Check in at 8am at the official count site on Di Giorgio Rd 2.8 miles north of Palm Canyon Drive for information as to the best location to observe the hawks.
