Once again we have lots of hawks in town for the feast (caterpillars). We watched birds kettle and stream into the Date Farm. Activity started early then settled down until 6:30P when a large kettle of almost 200 hawks flew into the Date Farm. Many hawks were still in the field when we left. If the conditions are the same tomorrow, lift off around 9:30A from several locations including the flower fields to the east and the Date Farm. Borrego Valley Rd. still looks like the best spot for viewing. I will post the blog this by 8:30P this evening at Borregohawkwatch.blogspot.com
