Great while it lasted! Even though the wind from the north was  light, the 
birds were flying, with Red-tails, Red-shoulders and Coopers Hawks  kettling 
and gaining height to cross the bay. But by 11 AM the wind had dropped  to 
zero and before noon it had swung to the south, essentially slamming the 
door  on the day's migration. Even so, we had 129 birds, with 39 Red-shouldered 
Hawks,  31 Red-tailed Hawks and 14 Coopers Hawks. 
Based on today, with light winds shifting early, the  next two days may be 
the last best days of the season, tomorrow probably  the better of the two. 
Consistent strong 15-20 mph northwest winds  Friday  are likely to give 
whatever birds are left the urge to move fast and far. 
If you'd like to see the big boys fly, bundle up and join us at  Lighthouse 
Point for the next day or two.
