September 15 is normally the peak of the broad-winged hawk migration. If conditions are right, we might witness kettles of large numbers of birds moving south to spend the winter. Optimum conditions include winds under 20 mph from the northwest or northeast. Blueberry Hill is a great location to watch for migrating hawks. We'll be looking for several hawk species, as well as eagles, vultures, and ravens. Blueberry Hill is also a great location for viewing migrating warblers.
We will be joining the Allen Bird Clubs annual potluck picnic. Feel free t obring a small contribution off food to share.
