Orange Sunday

We did make it to the Hawk Watch this morning, there were only 6 of us today. Not much moving across the levey either, we saw more birds on the drive over, a small flock of Sandhill Cranes, Spoonbills, Egrets, Osprey, Harris Hawk and lots of doves. We were beginning to think our tallies were going to be low but 10 min. before 1:00 we see a large kettle of Broadwing Hawks high up in the sky they estimated over 300 hawks so that ended todays watch on a high note.
We made it back to the park for Sunday's ice cream social, not many there either as more and more of us are heading home. Don't know why the weather's not good yet. We had a report on one of the guys driving back to IA and he got snow bound in KS.
