3901Borrego valley hawkwatch
- Mar 14, 2005Here is an update of our hawkwatch totals for this spring in Borrego
Valley-courtesy of Hal Cohen. The first Swainson's Hawks (25) were seen
Feb. 5 but we did not start operating the daily watch til Feb 11.
We wonder if the early birds were those known to winter in Mexico and
if so when do Argentine birds reach Borrego. We also wonder where they
roost (or stage) before and after reaching Borrego. Current studies shed
some light but much of existing data collected by California researchers
remains to be published and many migration questions remain unaddressed.
Anyone with ideas or info please contact me.
