Gone Hawk Watching

Ospreys, Broad-winged Hawks and other raptors will be migrating today.

Conditions are perfect today for hawk migration in New England. There was also much land bird migration last night. We went outside and could hear the chips of many migrating birds overhead. If you have a chance, go outside today and look for hawks and migrant songbirds.

Good luck out there! You're right- the conditions are great today, and if the nocturnal landbird flight is any indication, you should have a great day today (including good flocks of warblers etc. moving through to distract you from eying the distant sky). The entire eastern half of the US experienced heavy nocturnal migration last night. I've posted the radar for the northeast and mid-Atlantic on

and for the Southeast on Badbirdz-Reloaded:

now if I can just get some work done, I can justify hitting the local hawkwatch during lunch...

Good Birding, and great blog!
