August 13th - 3 Broad-winged Hawks!

Today we had strong northwest wind all day but the parade of birds didn't happen as it's still alittle too early yet.  What did happen was that we saw 3 Broad-winged Hawks fly over fairly low.  We had fantastic views of each one of them.

Sharp-shinned Hawk - 1
Broad-winged Hawk - 3
American Kestrel - 1
Total - 5

Swallows and Swifts were moving west most of the day.  Cormorants were grouped together out on the lake in the thousands feeding.

Here's a couple of my shots from today:

Baltimore Oriole (female)

Hummingbird Clearwing Moth

Dave, Howie, Betty, Peter, Phil, Terry, Ron, and Cori were down today enjoying the park.

Tomorrow's forecast is saying NW 30 km/h with gusts up to 47 km/h.  First Eagle of the season?
